So I got my new cable box and remote a few days ago and the batteries on the remote are already dead. Please tell me it's not normal for the batteries in my remote to go from 90% to dead in 2 days. Most of my remotes can go longer than a year before I have to change the batteries. I didn't even use the remote yesterday except to adjust the volume a few times and turn the tv on and off. I was using my phone to change the channel.
I have a voice remote (I don't use the voice feature). I noticed right away that all of the buttons are backlit and I don't see any way to turn that off. Backlighting is fine for a keyboard running on USB power but for a battery powered device it's just dumb.
Are there any sort of power conservation options that can be enabled for the remote? It has XR11 printed on the battery cover.
