questionshelp! where do i find a jumbo learning remote?


Can't help but want to give you a thumbs up for the tag:)



@ohcheri: A sweet sweet fact: i-like-big-remotes-and-i-cannot-lie other-brothers-you-cannot-deny is a mod edit.
Thank you for the mod edit.


@caffeine_dude: looks like at least one mod has found the missing Woot sense of humor, love it! Hope it's a new trend :)


@caffeine_dude: A mod edit???!!! Holy carp, what is going on? I also up-voted the question just because of the tags, and assumed they would be gone shortly. I love the mod edit. Way to go, mod!


Walgreen's sells them from time to time. I think they run about $10


The one pictured at the top was sold through Woot a few years ago. Are you looking for that particular remote?

@cf: @capguncowboy:
I am looking for a learning jumbo remote. I will check Walgreens if you think they are learning remotes.
I am not seeing any jumbo remote.

<<< WARNING >>> Searching jumbo remote at Walgreens is not safe for work.


@cf: Sorry missed my edit window.
Yes it is the remote I got from woot.
No the remotes I got from woot are not learning, the Amino equipment did not work with the remote. I did not have any codes and, even with a scan.


Love that the tags were lameified. I'm starting to think this place is not fun and carefree anymore.


@zuiquan: No kidding! They do something cool and awesome and get us thinking maybe there's hope yet, and then WHAM!, back to the new reality. What a shame.


This is a very outdated remote that can learn and has buttons that can be adjusted for size on the touch LCD display. It is unknown if it works with windows vista/7/8 but since it is so old it might be possible to get it cheap.


@zuiquan: and @pitamuffin: How many times do I have to say it? If you're going to put something funny in the deal/question, do so in the main body text! tags were never intended to be funny. They're supposed to be useful metadata for searching and so forth. If you don't want it deleted, don't put it in a tag!


@bsmith1: I agree, I used to try to make tags the mods would not need to adjust based on past questions or deals that were similar, but they got changes so now I just use tags as self amusement, I figure if the tags are getting changed, I just as well make myself smile.

Back to the question at hand.
@mybestuser1: That would be perfect for my mom, not so much for grandma because I think she needs the raised numbers.


@bsmith1: Obviously you didn't see what happened here. Also, useful metadata for searching? Ha!


@zuiquan: Oh, I saw it. OP posted a worthless "funny" tag and a mod added another one. Later, the "funny" tags were deleted. People late to the party would not have seen them, so the OP should have posted it in the body of the question and the mod should have posted their addition as a comment for all to enjoy.
That said, I don't even know why we have rights to add our own tags...they always get changed even if you try to use real ones.
