Well, I only mentioned the older b&o remotes for a reason (and apart from the basic beolink1000, they all had 2 way communication which was sublime!) . Never had such issues on their 'older' remotes. Up until the 90's they were the absolute king of remotes!!! I have a beolink 1000 hanging above my head on my bed and I operate my system, waking up in the dark (or going to sleep) without looking at the remote.
