I noticed Alex Chen was having some problems with his mother exercising in front of the TV, I got a suggestion, get a TV-B-Gone. These can also be great for turning off all your TVs right before you head to bed instead of tirelessly searching for your TV remote that your kids displaced.
Your TV-B-Gone® universal remote control resembles other TV remote controls, but is different in two important ways. First, it only has a power button that allows you to switch a TV on or off. You control when you see, rather than what you see. Second, the device is so small that it easily fits in your pocket, so that you have it handy whenever you need it wherever you go: airports, bars, restaurants, laundromats, etc.
