Remote control magic

Post by Greynomad » Fri Sep 14, 2018 12:42 am

Some years ago, our Coaster m/h layout was such that the only place we could instal the video player & TV was on the end of the kitchen bench. While the TV could be turned to view from the front swivel seats, the video if turned was too wide.
Leaving the video facing across the body of the vehicle meant we had to walk down to the thing to use the remote control.
I solved the problem by cutting one ‘blister’ from a lozenge pack and pushing the foil seal (left partially attached) into one half of it. I then taped the blister over the infrared receiver window with the open end facing the front seats.
The foil acted as a mirror for the infrared signal, turning it at 90 degrees, straight into the receiver window! 😁
It’s a principal which will work for any remote control where the receiver is in an awkward position. 😜
Regards & God bless,
Ray

Hmmm...
I’ve waited, but no-one has picked up on it. :? Perhaps either you are all too polite to question my vocabulary, or no-one knows the difference.
In my OP I have deliberately used the wrong “principal.”
The correct word is “principle.”
The former is a synonym for “headmaster.”
;) :lol:
