    Why can't they put pagers on remotes?
    Why can't they have a botton on your cable box that you can push when you can't find the remote? For one sometimes not thinking you will put it in the most radom spot. I have not found my DVD player remote for about two years now!

    There ya' go.

    We let these woman have our remotes who knows what they'll expect next?

    Equal wages? The right to vote? One (or god forbid!) even multiple orgasisms?

    Stand behind your man
    And never touch the clicker
    His love is sure to flicker
    If you don't know your place.

    Stand behind your man
    Just like the Bible tells you
    You'll go to hell if you
    Fail to understand

    To staaaaaaaaaand behind
    Your maaaaaaaaaan!

    There should be a 'clapper' feature on remotes so one can locate them at any given time. And there should be no remote made that doesn't have glow in the dark buttons and commercial skip.


    For Comcast On Demand, it's a button you push on the remote that brings up a 'tv guide' listing under the picture you're watching. You can then view what is on any other channel without actually changing the channel and you can check out what's on later too. You can also hit an 'info' button that will give you more details on the program.

    We recently got this (free as an upgrade from Comcast due to the 'digital conversion' thing) and we canceled our subscription to tv guide. Lovely feature. Oh and we also found out that we were entitled to two free 'dta' boxes (they let us see all channels our program package shows, including the ones that have been moved to the 'digital' channels). They were also free. I love free. :D

    Have you checked out all the free movies and shows you can watch if you push the On Demand button. If you miss a CSI, don't worry you can watch it by friday on ON Demand.
    ON Demand is the best thing ever! You want to watch some radom 80's movie, they got it most likely!
    If I knew how to do so, I would invent a remote that has a pager! And probably make lots of money!
