What’s the point of the reset button on the TV remote? Why did the television manufacturers decide to put one on the remote?
In a way, it’s called ‘bad design’.
To make a product a little cheaper, they gotta cut corners somwhere.
Remotes with many grand functions are cheaper to produce, than to duplicate the controls on the main board.
So they give you this overloaded buttoned monstrosity that the designers just have to fit one more function into, and it becomes crap! And you gotta have it, cause it’s the ONLY thing that can do some functions.
All you can do is shop smarter next time, (sometimes the best thing to know, is what you DON’T like, cut your fingernails to fit the teeny buttons, j/k , and maybe open up the control, and find the way to defeat that one dammned switch!
(Sometimes all it takes is a piece of scotch tape.)
I feel your pain.
Hey, any new interns in town?
