My batteries seem to last a week … they are energizer AA and I put a set in about 5 days ago and checked the battery level in settings, it said 84%, now it says 17% … nothing sits on top of the remote but it still drains very quickly … this is the 4th time I have replaced

I ignore the battery meter and replace the batteries when they stop working, that way I get an extra month out of them. You could use the web based remote if the problem continues.

Did that and it was like pulling teeth. Finally they agreed to ship a new remote. Made me feel like an idiot. It's better now but not by much and I suspect it's because I stopped using voice control. As much as I like my Shaw service, getting a new remote was anything but pleasant. That was never an issue with Rogers in Onrario which I used for 40 some years prior to moving out west.

Did the Rogers remote-control have "voice-input"? If so, was it enabled/active?

Maybe, purchase a package -- 4 rechargeable batteries and a charger. Use 2 batteries while recharging the other 2 batteries. It could be a cost-effective bypass.

@Rosmarie  The BlueCurve remotes use RF signals to control the boxes and provide voice control. If your BlueCurve equipment is line of sight and you don’t use voice control, you could switch the remote to IR only, which would use less power and conserve the batteries. I can’t remember the codes, I will post here when I find them, if interested.
