I had my second remote fail in about 6 months (the wireless mouse style). Has anyone else had issues or am I just lucky? It just worked until suddenly it didn't, I assumed the batteries were dead and changed them and...no go. Just like the last one. I have no kids so they're not getting abused or thrown around. Last time they sent me a new one free of charge and didn't make me send the old one back, but I don't know if they're going to do that again.
Other than that I haven't had any issues (besides a very infrequent XBMC crash) so I'm still very happy with the unit itself. I purchased a small keyboard and will control from that for a while, but it's hard to beat the convenience of the wireless mouse remote...when it works.
Am I the only one?
