WCIF English language TV Universal remote control?

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

All the Universal remote controls that I've seen are in Mandarin.
Anyone know where to buy new English remote control?
Thanks.

I found some English remote TV control on the internet, however, they're designed only for certain brand. It would be best if you could tell us which brand of TV remote control you're looking for. Thanks!

Have you asked the friendly folk at E-Lifemall in Zhongzheng road? Maybe the electric parts place on teh corner of Tafung and Beixin? Next to the shrimp place.

The tv is quite old and not a name brand. I think there is the remote programming technique by pointing remotes to each other. Like I mentioned, I've checked many places but all the remotes that I've seen are in Mandarin.

If you own an Android phone with IR port (like the HTC One series) you have the choice to get the "Peel Smart Remote" app. I managed to use it with a really really old Tatung TV, and it also supports appliances like Air conditioning units and other obscure stuff with IR interfaces. You can also add different profiles for each room at your home, and customize the layout.
