Do you always use the remote for your television set?

Or do you sometimes get up?

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?

Remotes have been around for at least 35 years that I can think of . . . but they were corded remotes. The infrared ones we use now came not long after because technology took such a leap.

I always use the remote because my two TVs have the controls hidden away at the back or the side and they are awkward to get at.
by Rice
Fully agree with you Rice. To hard to see to know what is what.

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...
I always use the remote... UNLESS one of the evil children have hidden it ... or lost it under the cushions! lol
I hide the remotes at my house . . mwuahahahahahahaha.

Clearly Rice you have trained my children well ;)
Moi . . ? ʕᴥʔ I'd like to than the Academy . . . . . . . hahahaha

. . oh, I just looked back at this and my K ran off :(

No use getting up,
our smart t.v. only uses a remote.
There is only an
on and off button for power...
So then what happens when the remote dies? How quick do you get a new remote and how much will that cost be?
by brigi
How quickly do I get a new remote you asked...if during business hours.... 1 hr.
How much will it cost......Who cares!
Anyway they are not expensive.

we always use the remote. Call me lazy.
Always! Very rarely will I switch it off at the set...I used to, to save save electricity...but I have gotten a tad lazy.

I always use the remote. I don't even know if our TV even has manual buttons. I have never needed to check!
by AJ
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 always the buttons in tvs now are so small and usually in a awkward place anyway.
Yes,I always use the remote for the t.v.
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!

Remotes for everything, easy to find, arrived in the post two days later.

PS . . the remote for my LG was $30 and free postage :-)
by Rice
thank you, that is a handy link
by brigi
You're welcome :-) I am keeping it bookmarked as I have dropped my remote (unheard of . . !) three times in the last two weeks :((( Must be the cold fingers . . .
by Rice
I sure do. As everything is at the side/back of the TV I would need a torch to see what button is what for.
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.
