    My remote has dissapeared!

    3 days ago, while cleaning my rec room, I lost my Satelite Remote. This is probably the single most important thing in here. With my satelite receiver box, I cannot change the channel unless I have the remote. Ive been watching YTV (Childrens cartoon network over here in Canada) for 3 WHOLE DAYS. Sponge this, superman crew that. I swear, if I dont get to watch the 3rd episde of Criminal minds on Wednesday, Im gonna be PO'd.
    Did you just kick my tire?! I hope you didn't just kick my tire!

    Check the couch located across from the TV. Reach down between the left arm of the couch and the seat cushion. Now reach further till you bottom out against the frame. Your remote is 3 inches farther back. You're welcome!

    No, I meant the left arm of the couch ... left when looking at the front of the couch. Watch out for the loose staple when you reach down to get the remote. Once again, you're welcome!

    Naw dude, don't you remember? You went to the fridge to look for something to eat. You found the cold pizza, placed the remote in the fridge as you pulled out the pizza and the carton of milk.
    I love pho long time.

    Try the bucket of powdered dish washing detergent. My friend found his 1/2 way through a bucket once. Maybe it's trying to escape ?

    You can get them much cheaper than that...

    Regardless, 3 days (maybe more) of YTV, or 60-70 bucks? Its a no-brainer...

    Thats a good point. For universal remotes, all i see are the logitech ones. Same prices at Costco as any other store.

    It fell off the couch and you inadvertently kicked it under the couch. It might be on the shelf of the coffee table under a Thrasher magazine.
