Sorry if I jumped all over you.... I do know which version I have: The WRONG one :-( The full part # is printed (on a sticker, I believe) on the backside of the battery compartment door and it's not B01.
My local Best Buys do have the newer version according to their packaging. I called two stores and asked the people to read the back of the packaging and both read the "ability to disable motion sensor" or similar wording. Look here, [Link: amazon.com]
, and then click the 2nd image that shows the back of the package.
Problem: I didn't buy the remote from Best Buy and there are moral, if not ethical and legal, issues, about exchanging it there... :-(
I've also e-mailed UEI about this problem (they've actually been reasonably quick at replying). Someone mentioned that it can be "upgraded". Hopefully over the phone, but I doubt I'd get that lucky.
