I am fed up with Trumped up prices for remote controllers.

Give me a break. As to all of the gossip and late night humor about the president, ... Just look at all of the jokes on late night talk shows but that is another subject and I wont go there. The topic of this discussion is actually about DVR remotes The remote controller to the DVR only has some functional buttons. The cost to replace our DVR remote is about 60 bucks at Amazon and there is only one available. But Walmart had it in their inventory at one time for under 10 bucks, but guess what, they must have all been bought out by people who want to resell it on either Ebay for about 30 bucks or on Amazon for about 60 bucks. And to top it all off, Walmart says they are currently OUT OF STOCK. - But they will Email me when it comes back in stock, like that is going to happen. It's obvious that when I buy a new DVR I will buy 2 extra remotes just because I know that someone else will buy a few dozen of them and re-sell them on Ebay or on Amazon for a trumped up price.

That is probably why Walmart is 'out of stock'. They caught on to the scam of purchasing from them for a low cost and reselling it for quadruple that amount. They most likely have it in stock but are waiting for the price to increase with the demand.

They should be made to wear hats that read FEED THE GREED or a T-Shirt with the words. I buy things at Salvation Army so I can re-sell it on eBay. I see this all the time. Everywhere I go people hoard things just to re-sell them. It is totally a monopoly for first come first get or you're out of luck buddy. Sad.
