I can't recall the exact date this was bought for me, but it was in June 2011. It worked fine till some time in January 2012, then the batteries suddenly began needing renewing about every 3 weeks. It's kind of expensive. I use it a lot by running up and down in the Guide mode, plus the Mute button, but no more now than I did when we first bought the remote. I'm sure it didn't need a change for at least six months after we bought it.
Is this normal for this particular model?
