Toodles…a quick update. After our last exchange I plugged the stick in to retest b/c I wasn’t 100% about the guide button working. I tested it and it didn’t. I got a little pissed and really started thumping the guide button hard. After about 8-10 presses it started working (a’la Fred Sanford and his TV). At that point I retested the other buttons and they started working too. Strange.
BTW…me opening the case to troubleshoot was the first time I’ve opened the unit. It’s been in the closet for a couple of months b/c of football starting up and Starcraft 2 dropping.
So it’s working again but not sure why it ever stopped. Any ideas?
