HV20 remote's battery cover hard to remove, or is it just me?

I never used the remote until today. Trying to pull open the battery cover of the remote was a real pain... or is it just me?

It's tricky, but the way I see it, being so hard to get open I won't fiddle with it all the time and end up breaking it like I do all my other remotes. ;)

Yeah, I had to stare at mine for a couple minutes to see how it worked. There is little tab to press in and then the battery holder slides right out. I think I read on another thread someone who went at it with a screwdriver. That is *not* necessary..

Yeah I never noticed at first that there were two arrows, hard to push the little tab in one direction and pull it out at same time, maybe if your fingers are smaller. I like the fact it locks in that way but they could put a sticker on the back with a little diagram. I would hate to have resorted to a screw driver and mess up such a nice new toy.
