MCE Remote Stops Working
Quick post in case it happens to me again. My MCE IR remote stopped working suddenly and after some Googling I found out that I needed to change the batteries. The weird part is that it also required the remote to be "reset". One way is to short the battery terminals, but that didn't work for me so I found another solution.
