Remember when the remote control was the kid sister or brother? They were kind of "forced" to get off the sofa to change the channel (and there was a whopping three to choose from...) because that's the way it was. Those kid sisters or brothers were lucky if someone just happened to be walking into the TV room that would be nice enough to switch channels for them. It was then a "miracle", or perhaps, a "godsend" when the remote was easily accessible and got into the hands of the masses around the world.
So, how many remotes does one need nowadays? To work one TV, we may need two or three (that's including the easily lost Apple TV remote that is as big as a stick of gum, and gets buried in the quilts/blankets/cushions. While visiting over the holidays, I noticed seven remotes for what it looked like one TV, though I cannot be sure. What I can say is that is surely a lot of remotes, and I would be very confused in trying to find the right one to turn on the doggone "thing" for sure!
BSoleille! The bright side of choosing the correct remote!
