Unless it is not working, which is REALLY annoying, yes.
I do not get up to change channels or volume.
Sad really to think we moved to do all this some years ago.
Anyone know how long remotes have been around as I remember the big TV which was our first, and having to do everything manually!
No computers then?
Yes. My husband bought a universal remote and I was skeptical at first. It is worth its weight in gold as all the individual remotes are stored away. It even has a help function if things aren't working. If only it could fetch the chocolate...
Yes. I didn't know there was any other way!
If I'm in the lounge room, ( which is rarely) I'm up & down a lot. I sit on a dinning room chair, & my husband lies on the lounge, so he doesn't get up much, except for his meals! I do get the lounge after dinner, for a couple of hours, before I go to bed to catch up on another iview show.
Yes I use the remote controls mostly, and I lay them up side down for two reasons, that the cat or when I turn over in bed, cannot change channels by mistake and to keep the dust off the buttons when not in use. I don't think it is being lazy, one does not want to spill food to get up and change channels LOL!
I don't think ouf tv's have buttons so always the remote. As far as I know, the only times the remote has "died" was due to batteries needing to be replaced and as there is always dozens of batteries in our house, it only takes a couple of minutes for it to come alive again.
Yes, because it doesn't have any controls on the tv itself so you can't actually use it without the remote. It's a stupid design since as we discovered once, if the remote batteries run out while it's on you have to unplug it to turn it off.
