Cool trick : How to check if your remote control is working!
My FInLaw shared with me ingenious idea to check if remote's batteries are ok, if the remote's IR sensor is working OK.
Switch on your cell phone's camera - focus it on the cameras lens and press any button. The camera will capture a IR Ray that the normal human eye cannot see... pretty easy way to avoid tapping the remote on ur other fist to make it work :)
Hope this simple idea helps sometime in your lives...
