Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
How can I tell if my remote is working? You could invest in an infared detector pen or device that will detect the infared signal or you could use a common cellphone with camera mode. Place the phone in camera mode and hold the remote up to the camera lens. By depressing the buttons on the remote now you can actually see the emitted infared light slowed down to a visable light, thereby determining that any or all buttons of the remote are functioning properly.
