Who can remember the Ferguson Videostar VHS recorder with the wired remote control which was so long it could have been used for a skipping rope and at the time was probably the only remote control in the house!
Anyway, Iv'e just counted all the wireless remote controls at my immediate disposal (do I not have anything better to do?) in the house. The list is as follows

TV............5
DVD Players...3
Cable TV......1
Hi-fi stereo..2
PS3...........2
XBOX..........2
Wii...........2
Car...........3
Ceiling Fan...1
Wall Fans.....2

That's a total of 23!!!! just glad they are wireless and not wired.

Is this the norm or not? count up how many you have, it may surprise you.

I should buy shares in Duracell [:D]
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

Funds paid to date accepted as F&F 16th August 2013, the wait for completion begins.
Wait over....certificate recieved 3rd May 2014

Never had the Ferguson one, I had JVC and I don't remember that having a wired remote.

We've got:

2 TV/Sky
1 DVD
2 Wii
1 Stereo
2 PS3
3 car

I think that's about it.

We're not posh enough to have ceiling or wall fans![:D][:D]

My first husband was a wizz with gadgets and he mad us a remote for our tv back in the early 70s. All you had o do was clap your hands. The proplem with that was if you banged the door or dropped something on the floor and it made a noise it would change the channel on the tv.Fun if we had visitors.

We had the tennis game which was wired! How boring was that?

I remember us having a Commodore 64 with a wired keyboard and it used to take forever for the games to load!

The decathlon was brilliant! We played it all the time!

Couldn't be doing with the XBox though. I love the Wii fit.
