    How many remote controls do you have?

    I have 5 remote controls in my home, how many do you have?

    I have 1 only.  It is getting much easier to program say an iphone for example, with all of your electronic devices.  Then, you can just use your phone for everything.

    Oh, my.  We have 3 Wii remotes, two dvd remotes, and three tv remotes...8... I also have a remote control to my house alarm, and then there are my children's remote-controlled vehicles!  Interesting question!

    I'd love to learn to use my Droid for a remote -- not sure if it's an option, though.  I suppose I could look!

    interesting, it never occured to me that childrens toys sometimes use remote controls, the question arose when I visited a friend a few nights ago & he had 8 remotes lined up on his coffee table - I found it quite bizarre, not his kind of OCD but how these can accumulate, I agree though with 'LeisureLife' regarding iPhone apps although I have yet to be tempted into an iPhone yet after listening to the problems a lot of my friends have with them...maybe one day when my living room floor is covered in remote controls ha!

    Hmm, let me see ... Sky, XBox and dvd in the lounge, tv remote in the kitchen and tv/dvd remote in the bedroom.

    Don't watch much tv, which is lucky as hubby usually has the remote!!!
