    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    I never knew a guy that wasn't glued to HIS REMOTE.
    A problem with remotes is they don't light up. At night it would be helpfull. I have one that came with my receiver that I'll never use. It must have 100 buttons.
    I remember the first one. Made by Zenth. I think it worked on tones with resonate frequency relays.
    Tracers work both ways.

    yes the 1st one was made by Zenith and it was called the lazy bones. It did work by tones, but was faulty in the fact that someone jingling a key ring could change the channels. I also agree that they should make a light up remote. I do however recall seing a remote that glows in the dark guess its a step in the right direction, but not quite there yet.

    I have an older (2004) rear projection Toshiba that has a light up remote.

    A TV has buttons on it? What's with the rabbit? Sounds cruel to use their ears in that fashion.

    I'm wearing out the #8 on both my remotes, here fox news is channel 38 and I gotta push so hard I'm afraid I'm gonna have a stroke.
