Was gunna twitter, but the post was too long. My dad's tv/dvd remote broke. He got a 'replacement' that didn't have the dvd funtions. None of the FOUR universal remotes worked on it. Finally, i opened the old remote to see if i could figure it out. Nope. On a hunch, i opened the replacement (it had an almost duplicate design) and discovered that the cards inside were duplicates, only the faceplate was lacking buttons. Swapped the cards, and now entertainment can be done from the sofa once again!
