Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
Simple Test - Look at the IR emitter thru your Cell phone camera.
Just about everyone these days has a Cell phone equipped with a camera.
If you just cant get your TV, projector, or whatever to listen to your Remote, do a simple test to know - is it really sending a signal to my gear? Ever wonder if the batteries are dead? Or maybe a button is stuck ON and draining your batteries down overnight.
Turn on your cell phone camera, simply peer at the IR eye at the very end of the remote thru the LCD screen of your camera and press any button on the Remote. You should see a light flash with each button press that you simply cannot see with the naked eye. Dont see anything? Change your batteries.
Yes, it will also work with a digital camera.
Give it a try next time your Remote makes you frustrated.
