What it all boils down to is that I have three remotes: one for our doddering DVD player, one non-universal universal that turns the aux sound on and off and also controls the TV, and a third non-universal universal that works the cable box and the aux volume, but won't do anything to the TV or the DVD player. (Perhaps "universal remotes" need a less ambitious name? Maybe they should be called "certain parts of the universe remotes," or "galactic remotes" or simply "extra remotes?")
The only constant I've found with any of these remotes is that none of them work when my kids have taken them upstairs or outside during a game of "ray gun." They also don't work when I have hidden them to prevent their being taken upstairs or outside during a game of "ray gun" and forgotten where I put them.
If all of this sounds frustrating, it is. In the extreme. Luckily, necessity is the mother of invention, and so I recently came up with a product that I call The Connolly True Universal Remote. This simple device is easy to install, works with any existing devices and has the added benefit of being nearly impossible to misplace or break. I am currently drawing up a marketing plan to sell this fantastic and much-needed device, but I thought I'd offer you, my readers, an early opportunity to invest. If you'd like to buy shares in Connolly True Universal Inc., a subsidiary of Calm Audison Publications, please email me at [email protected] and let me know how many shares you're looking to acquire.
And now it is my great pleasure to present The Connolly True Universal Remote!
