Decided to do something about the flaky SELECT....

Link: http://www.hifi-remote.com/jp1/disassemble/

Over time my URC-6131 remote has been getting harder and harder to work the select and arrow navigation on my ReplayTV menus.

I had tried battery swaps and various things, but finally accepted that I may have to resort to opening up the remote and applying the FAQ response for select button problems with these style of remotes.

So, while killing time after the arrive of my new 'box' and before my upcoming phone interview....I found myself trying to pry open the remote (while watching some shows from my ReplayTV at the same time)....

Well, as it was reported there was this 'liquid' under the select button....I cleaned the pads and put the remote back together.

While I had it opened, I also pushed the IR LED forward...which I hear will help widen its range.

Well, reworking the buttons...things aren't any worse than before. I suppose it has improved a little bit...but it still isn't 100%. :..(

Hopefully the remote will last for as long as I keep my ReplayTVs going.....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
