Not sure why everyone lucky enough -- ha -- to get a Motorola STB
from their provider can't use this new remote, but those U-Verse customers with the VIP series of IPTV set-tops will. The MotoCharge 1000 remote should last about four months before you have to dock it on the included charger, which also features a digital clock that reminds of something right out of the eighties. More interestingly, it includes a "find" button which can be used to locate the remote via RF. The charging dock can be plugged into the wall or into an open USB port on the box, which is nice if outlets are tight behind your TV.
