If you have the XR5 or XR11, you must press down and then slide downwards.

Re: How do I change the battery in in remote control

With my remote XR11, just gently poked a small flathead screwdriver into seam and the lower third of the case slid off right away to reveal the 2 doubleAA batteries. This was after half an hour of pushing down endlessly and getting nowhere. Then i texted my 18 year old cousin and he told me about the marvels of little flathead screwdrivers.
