Well, I finally put together what worked for me:1) pull a battery.2) hold the power button down when you replace the battery - this should FINALLY get 'sefe mode' to show up on the remote3) update remoteYou may need to keep the battery our of the remote for 1 hour or so.You may need to do this multiple times.You
may need to press power - OK - 0 <zero> at the same time before
you do this (This is only if all else fails and you are really
desparate and want to try anything. Try it with the batteries in only,
Try it with the batteries out and hold all three down while you plug in
the USB cable).I did these various steps multiple times and it
finally worked. Trye the 3 steps top down and then with each of the
alternatives a couple of times for each alternative.Use the 'Power'
- 'OK' - '0' sequence as a VERY LAST resort - this really messes with
the remote and may cause it to get worse and require you to do the
steps many times before it finally works.
Just thought I'd say that I have the same problem and called support like Appollostees post suggested.They are shipping me out a new remote. Should be here in a few days. So, I agree that they really do have good customer support!
