Bad UHF remote? (1 Viewer)

I got my 722 about 6 weeks ago and have had difficulties with the UHF remote throughout.

It doesn't seem to reliably get signal back to the 722. Here is what I've done so far:

Switched to channel "B"
moved the remote antenna to TV2 via 2 splitters (no attenuator)
Changed batteries on remote 2

I get the remote to effect the desired command about 70% of the time - which is higher than it was prior to relocating the antenna.

Call it techno-voodoo but it SEEMS that when I smack the remote onto the palm of my other hand, the remote will give me solid response for a dozen commands or so before going flaky again. Under all cases, the red light comes on whenever a button is pushed but sometimes that is all that happens.

Should I talk to DISH? Will they replace the remote (it's a leased receiver)?

Thanks to all for reading and/or replying.
