Question about remote controls
My old faithful remote bit the dust. I use it mostly for programming my VCR and watching TV. One feature I really loved on the dead remote is "tape position". I can't seem to find this feature on other remotes. Is this not a common feature? I loved knowing exactly how much tape was left without having to ff through the whole tape and figure it out.
And why the heck do they put the most often used buttons at the very bottom of the remote? Its so ergonomically not well made.
Is there really much difference between any of the remotes in the $10-$15 range? I ended up getting the RadioShack Family Favorites remote for $10 but haven't used it yet.
Maybe I'll find the "tape position" feature hidden away in some menu somewhere??? On my previous one, it had its very own button. Gosh I miss that button.
