Can't find it anywhere. It's been missing for almost 2 days now. I actually watched Larry the cable guys show and Top Shot

last night cause I didn't want to get up and try surfing through 1,000 channels with the satellite box.

Top shot was a bunch of grown men throwing hatchets and shooting blow darts, WTF! ! ! Where's my remote. I think one of the kids hid it.

I find mine in my kid's toybox periodically.

You have satellite, if it's Dish and you have an iPhone you can change channels with your phone.

I guess the sofa ate it; or worst... The dog ate it... True story too...

Took apart the sofa, love seat, looked under the coffee table, checked the kitchen, the workshop,
behind the TV, my fat rolls, on top of my head, felt up the wife, checked the kids toy boxes, can't find it.
One of the kids had to hide it.

Crap, what comes on history channel tonight?

You can buy a universal remote at Walmart. That's what I did when my remote broke.

It happens. Check in the couch and I mean IN THE COUCH.

Mine was gone for days until I found that between the arm rest and the first back cushion there is access down to the inside of the couch. I had to pull a couple of staples off the bottom to drop the fabric, reach in, and grab the remote

Thought about that. I'm halfway tempted to go through the bag of trash sitting in the back of the truck. But, I think I'd rather

just go buy a universal remote.

Friend at work just dug his remote out of the trash. Could not find it and he asked his girlfriend about it (she was the last one with it). She said she doesn't remember where it is. Finally goes through the trash in the trashcan outside and finds it wrapped up in the newspaper she was reading.

Or you could purchase a make/model specific remote control. I've used the company below to order replacement remotes for work. Usually they're just like the original remote control.

Just checked the pantry and kitchen cabinets. Double checked all the cabinets and drawers that the kids can reach.

some website in the internet said I have remote viewing skills. so i'll give it a try..........

I am seeing that it is either under a small table in the living room, or in the kitchen, behind the bread.

make the damn kids sleep in the basement till it shows up.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 2:56:06 PM EST
Here is a million dollar idea......

TV manufacturers should put a FIND button on the front of the TV. When you push the FIND button it will cause a tiny speaker in the remote to beep for 5 seconds or so.

Granted you are SOL if the batteries in the remote are dead, but what the fuck even if you found the remote, it is useless without batteries anyway....

Kids?

They probably traded your remote for a frog.

Sorry.




edit: Or tried to use it on another TV. The remote, not the frog.

I wonder when the cell phone manufacturers are going to start putting the LED's into phones to make them usable as a TV remote? It would cost almost nothing and the engineering involved would be simple.

You gotta be kidding me! The new remotes have this feature now? I've been with Time Warner for nearly 20yrs and i have yet to see this feature. Of course I've had yhe same remote and box for about 5yrs.
