not sure how this got missed in the upgrade?
How can Telus 'upgrade' their remote, but remove so many features. Changing inputs, having the aux available to program DVD players. Seems they are going backwards. My old Telus satellite remote could do 3 times as many task. I don't get it.
@Jesscarlet Merging your idea with an existing one.
Agreed our samsung smart TV starts on a home screen and we have to click the 'ok' button to maximize the telus input, so now EVERY time we turn on the tv we have to use a second remote. Makes the TV power button entirely pointless. Thanks for reverting us back 15 years 😕 I guess we will have to buy our own remote.
This is VERY annoying. I'm sure an update to the firmware could simply enable a button like "option" to function as an input button. This is HUGE deal for a lot of people. Having extra remotes laying around and needed is a pain, not to mention my youngest now needs help with the TV now when she didn't before (with Shaw).
I don't expect a new remote, but an update to the existing ones functionality would work just fine!
That begs the question, how do you update the software/firmware on the hundreds of thousands of remotes? There's no data port, and they're not user serviceable. The only way to do it is to replace them entirely, just to get one button/function. Best solution right now would likely be a Logitech Harmony remote.
