Don't know if this has been posted before (seems everything else has), but I learned how to test whether my Lilliput IR remote was transmitting today...from the guy at Radio Shack ! Point your camera phone at the remote, hit a button on the remote and you can see the IR light emitted from the remote. Evidently cameras pick up IR light. Maybe this is common knowledge, but it's news to me. Go Radio Shack Guy !!
