My Precious, or my only source of power Posted on Thursday, 4th October , 2012 by Stephen G. Hipperson He-He-He-He – I know how they all work AND how to use them in combination to get the music/tv I want. ——-Stephen——- Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPinterestLike this:Like Loading... Related
I’m told by my nearest and dearest, that we have too many remote controls, but I think you have beaten me by one.
When all the controls are replaced by just one, will you tell your nearest or dearest, or will simply flourish the various controls as you’ve always done……? 😉 🙂
That’s a lot of remotes!
And every one has a perfectly valid purpose!
Yes – power these days is not muscle, horsepower or gasoline engines any more 😉
hahaha… awesome shot and great title!
And do you have a fine little Remote Caddy that sits astride the arm of the sofa?
No – that would spoil the fun of hunting for them when I want to use them. 😉
I think it’s a man thing.
I have 5 too – so I wouldn’t be too sure about that. It’s a way of life, I think. 😉
Don’t have the Wii, though…
The only time the Wii gets used nowadays is when we want to watch the BBC’s web based “iPlayer” service.
i can relate to this photo..i also happen to have the same number of remote controls in my living room. how i wish i have a remote control that combines the functions of all of this 🙂
I’ve given that some thought and I don’t think it would ‘helpful’ in maintaining my power base and my raison d’etre. 😉
I think that impressive gang calls for rechargeable batteries.
That’s a fair point, but I’ve found the remotes don’t seem to get through vast quantities of batteries.
Thank you, Rose.
Hah! I have the same problem, too many remotes for too many diverse devices. It would be great if I could control everything with a tablet device, and stuff all my remotes into a drawer somewhere. 😉
Sounds like a challenge – presuming there’s an IR output on a tablet, I see no reason why a whizz kid shouldn’t be able to programme something up – most devices have a specific operational code it would be just a matter of find out what each was?
Indeed. I don’t think it would be difficult. Universal remotes have existed for years, and seem to be capable of auto-programming themselves. Give me a Windows 8 app that can do that, and I’ll be a super-happy camper with a single device to control all my other devices. 🙂
But will you not lose your source of power – as an app is likely to be somewhat …… ‘dumbed down’ and unlikely to need the intellectual prowess needed to understand the nuances of the separate controls which provide a demarcation between you, ‘the controller’ and them ‘the how-do-I’s ? 😉
