Picture Delay Button for TVs
It has happened to everyone: You have been watching a sports event for nearly two hours and nothing spectacular has happened. So you decide to go fetch a beer. The moment you're in the kitchen, you hear the commentator yelling and the audience roaring like mad. You run back to the living room to see what's going on, but by the time you're there it's all over. (Ok, they might show you a replay, but it's not the same thing...)

The solution: Push the "Picture Delay" button on your remote control before setting off for the kitchen. With this feature, the picture will lag ten seconds behind the sound. If you hear that there's something exiting going on, you have enough time to return to your TV set and see it on the screen.
