Yep, that 2-for-$300 deal was
a steal, and I did the same thing - sold the extra one on CraigsList for $219 or so.
That subsidized the one I kept to the point where my net price was also in the two-digit range.
The only problem was, that was right about the time where they were transitioning from the flat remote to the curvy remote, and I had hoped I ordered late enough to get the newer ones, but I got the flat ones.
I think for a few weeks they had both types in their inventory and were just randomly shipping out whichever was nearest.
Like many others, I eventually bought a Dish 20.1 remote.
And now for what I really came online to post:
One difference I've noted since getting 135R is the difference in the sound levels between the recorded and live programs.
Recorded shows were always a little quieter than live shows, but now the difference is more noticeable.
When I stop viewing a recording and it switches to live, I find myself often having to turn down the volume.
A hot reboot didn't help matters, unfortunately.
So, here's another suggestion for CM to ignore: The sound level between live and recorded shows should be the same, or at least allow us to adjust them with some system settings so they can be made the same.
