How Many Remotes Does It Take?
Crazy...don't you think?
We have remotes for everything. TV's, DVD players, Harmon Karden, game systems, and we even have a remote for a fan we use to use in the living room as it is the only room without a ceiling fan. We stopped using it once we figured out it wasn't a ghost turning it on and off but rather the TV remote which was getting picked up by the fan's LED sensor. Yep, every time we changed the channel the fan would change speed or turn off. Funny right? Almost as funny as when we thought our Wii was busted just before Christmas, with several games already purchased as gifts. Turns out that the Wii sensor bar is pretty sensitive too. We couldn't get the wiimotes to work properly because the sensor bar was picking up the LED's in the Christmas tree lights. Now that you've had your laugh...
Yamaha neoHD is all your remotes in one. You no longer will have to search high and low for the missing DVD remote (it's not just me...is it?)but instead can program one remote to control all your entertainment components. Hubster has a remote that he has programmed for the DVD and TV and prefers to use it because of it's "light up" feature. He swears this makes it easier to see. It isn't programmed for the cable though, so it's just another remote to get lost. The neoHD has a virtual remote that shows at the bottom of your TV screen for ease of switching between components. Hubster will like that...a LOT!
You can become a fan of neoHD on facebook and stay up-to-date on the latest technology and share with other remote obsessed individuals. I prefer one to do it all. How 'bout you? How many remotes do you need?
