    I think it's older than the Internet because apps don't quite work propperly.

    Whine. What do you want from this thread?

    Maybe a spelling lesson?

    This thread seems to be the discussion forum equivalent of watching cat videos.

    This thread seems to be a fairly pointless whinge. Really, what kind of response is expected?

    "Poor you, Beaconator. I really feel your pain."

    "Back in '64 I had an old fridge that didn't work properly either. Darn technology!"

    "I'm guessing you have the Sony X-23 remote. The problem is probably the bad foozewizzle circuit. You could try replacing the battery and vomiting on it."

    "What kind of remote control has apps?"

    "Maybe they packed the wrong remote in the box with your TV."

    "If your remote's so old, why don't you buy a new one? Did you really expect it to run apps that are 30 years beyond its date of manufacture?"

    "Doesn't it feel good to have that off your chest?"

    "Ah.... First world problems. When I was boy, they used to make us lick the road."

    "Look on the bright side! Apps that work not quite properly are better than apps that don't work at all."

    "Throw it away and use your TV without a remote."

    "I don't think you spelled propperly properly."

    "Can you find the Caps Lock key on your keyboard, or is that broken too?"

    "My sister has a dog called Alf."

    "Nice weather we're having, eh?"

    "Does your will concede defeat yet?"

    etc. etc.

    When all else fails, try a bigger hammer.

    LOL! You sure that remote control in your hands isn't one of those old "clicker" remotes, from say, the 1950s-1960s, that had no electronics in them but only made noise??

    I doubt that will work on today's TVs.

    That's a good start for getting it to work. Now for the next step!

    Are the batteries in it? They may have rolled behind the couch, which is invariably the lowest point in the room.

    Now point it at the TV and press the ON button. Sorry to keep you just standing there with the remote in your hand for 3 days!

    Um... it's more of a puzzle game than cat"s socializing"

    The remote has a camera and the tv is also a computer

    Are you saying where you point the remote you see that place on the screen?
    Give us the make and model of tv/computer, and James will calmly go through the problem with you.

    Ps. My tv remote also doubles as a microwave oven..No more getting up and going to the kitchen to do my tv dinners.

    I think you're trolling instead of "being funny". Get a grip on your remote, and hide it.

    $₩££+. I put my sunglasses on top of the microwave and it seems to have had a positive result against my father's ass cancer...

    I understand. It can be a puzzle to get the battery compartment open. And all those confusing buttons and stuff on the front of the control. Really, what do the TV manufacturers expect. Nobody could be expected to get those things to work!

    Don't get me started on how to get cats to socialise. I think that most of them are just not up to it. Maybe it's genetic. On the other hand, I used to have a cat that loved sleeping on my chest in front of a fire. Maybe that wasn't a social thing, though. Hmm...

    Your older-than-the-internet remote has a camera?!

    Hey, can you take a photo of your tv and post it here?

    Oh wait, scratch that. You'd need to know how to use the remote for that.

    Are you sure you're not confusing your computer with a tv? My laptop, for example, doesn't have a remote, so that kind of thing might be the problem.

    I used to eat the odd remote myself so I think I understand the issue.

    Let us know what mitch's mom and ron have to say about it. I'm intrigued now. Together, I'm sure we can solve your problem!

    There must be more comfortable places for your father to sleep than on top of the microwave. Get the man a bed in the shade.
