Beeper inside the TV remote control

Postby C4 » Tue Dec 17, 2002 10:37 pm

This device should be like that in some models of cordless phones: you press a button on the base( the fixed part of the phone) and the mobile part of the phone make a sound, a beep. By analogy you press a button on the TV, and the remote control (a device that I usually forget where it is in the room ) makes a beep... :)

With all the people here having problems finding their remotes, I would suggest that every new TV comes with TWO remotes as a standard. Not only could you have fun duels with your girlfriend / wife deciding which program to watch, but it would also considerably increase the likelyhood of finding at least one remote when you're looking for it (except, of course your girlfriend has hidden both of them on purpose... ;-) ).

MOTOROLA TV REMOTE LOCATOR

Postby Michael D. Grissom » Sat Mar 29, 2003 4:39 am

My Motorola TV with SmartSound and SmartPicture also came with built-in remote control locator. When you turn the TV on using the power button on the front of the TV, the remote beeps for about 45 seconds. I'm pretty sure other manufacturers also have the same feature.

I only had to use it five times to learn where all the hiding places were. :-b

How 'bout a secondary remote control that magnetically affixes to your refridgerator and it's sole purpose is to locate your primary remote control or car keys or whatever? Nevermind,.. I just remembered that Radio Shack has been selling those for years -- small enough to put on a keychain. The only problem the Radio Shack unit has is that the beep frequency centers around the most common frequency loss that older baby boomers have.

How about a universal remote with a docking bay that plugs into an outlet that recharges the remote (no more batteries) and has a pager/locater feature?

The remote control idea is definitely a great idea, I'd love to know where to get one from.

haha I like the guys comment about two remotes and having duals with your girlfriend...

But yeah honestly I'm surprised this actually isn't already a thing. Its not hard to have a signal go out from a button on the TV to trigger or set off an alert/beeping on your remote. It seems like the same thing that we have for our car alarms. We push a button and our car makes noise. This is very practical. I don't know how many times i've lost my remote lol.
