No, I'm not getting divorced. But it's almost as bad.
After 5 rough years, including 4 years of surviving countless drops off the coffee table due to my old lab's tail that was at the perfect height for coffee table carnage..... my URC300 universal remote has finally stopped working. That's what I get for bragging about it last week I guess. Never taunt the Happy Fun Ball.

Actually it still kind of works. The touch screen display stopped functioning. However, and quiet by accident, I discovered that if you press the side button for the back lighting it will actually work as long as the light is turned on. Very odd. So it's functional but very inconvenient and I'm sure this is not conducive to good battery life.

I have to say though, I feel good that I got my money out of it. It was certainly as rugged as it claimed to be at the time to survive almost 6 years of both my dog's tail, which I nicknamed "His Louisville Slugger," and of course my own admitted clumsiness.

Goodbye old friend!

Wow, if I kept hitting my remote with what I call MY "Louisville Slugger", I'd be arrested and seeing the Doc here.

I remember that SNL skit. Good one.

My condolences for your loss. I'll have your wife sprinkle the SSRI du jour into your water for the next week or two.

... I'd scribble into your chart furiously and then ask that you dub me a few movies from your collection.

You would probably get away with it. T-ball bats don't attract much attention.

More likely, a whiffle bat since I always whiff when I take a swing at it....

Just wondering and perhaps a simplistic question, but, in the years that you have had the remote have you ever replaced the battery?
