Hints and Tips
Who the boss? You the boss!
We complain today about the number cluttering up our coffee tables, but time was when the remote control and the convenience it affords simply didn’t exist. That was when, like, Hannibal was alive,though,and with progress – and the rich entertainment offerings it has brought to the TV – today’s remote control needs talents beyond flipping channels and adjusting volume.
If you’ve ever, for example, tried to use your remote with an onscreen keyboard to change the name of a recording, enter a password or surf the web, you’re probably already seething at the memory. The people in labs coats at Samsung HQ feel your rage and have brought the remote control unit into the 21st century with two options that provide a worthy companion to your brand new Smart TV.
If you like the feedback provided by a physical keyboard, the RMC-QTD1 Flip is a two-faced lovely providing a button-driven QWERTY keyboard on one side and a conventional remote control interface on the flip. A built-in screen means you don’t have to check your spelling on the TV as you type, plus, with the Anynet+ feature, you can operate compatible Blu-ray players and surround systems connected to a Smart TV – no need for multiple handsets. Now, that’s one remote to rule them all!
There’s also an app which, downloaded to mobile gadgets – including Samsung smartphones, tablet computers and iThings – allows them to do duty as a Smart TV controller. All the usual tellie controls are provided, plus there’s a virtual keyboard that communicates your content searches, Twitter feeds and Facebook posts over WiFi to your Smart TV.
Full QWERTY keyboard
Yes! A real one, with real keys! Perfect for social media sites, web browsing and using Smart Hub*, you’ll type like a champ with this!
