Navigating the Remote Control

Remote Control

Most audio and video devices, such as televisions, DVRs, stereo equipment and DVD players, include a remote control. Some remotes are basic and easy to use, but more often than not they have buttons that you will never even use, let alone learn what they do. Of course, there are universal remote controls as well, which promise to simplify your life by controlling multiple devices.

Whether you are shopping for a new remote, looking for programming assistance or need other information, this guide is here to help with detailed tutorials, troubleshooting steps and product reviews to help you make an informed decision.
