Mine has stopped working and I don't know why.

I've changed the batteries and shit but its not working and I can't use my freeview box.

Anyone know how I can sort it out?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Buy one of those multi use remotes from Argos or a £ shop.

    Errr I think I might have one.

    How on earth do you set it up though?

    I'm a girl and I'm silly.

    Hahahaha.

    I'm not good with technical stuff tho.

    I've got an idea, you come and visit me, fix my freeview remote control and we can go for KFC.

    The multi-thingy remote will only work if it's got a compatible system built into its memory. Which it probably won't have. Even if it does it's unlikely to offer full functionality, such as the red button and whatnot.

    You may have to get a new box if your remote is really screwed. Have you tried brand new batteries?

    My Freeview remote is a bit crap too. You press a button at the top and a it does a function of a button at the bottom and I don't even my hands anywhere near the button grr.

    Many of my remotes do that from time to time. I think it has to do with the infrareds being affected by something in their way to the receiver, or the way you're pointing the remote.
