Definition: TV remote control

There are two kinds of TV remote control transmission technologies. The first is the traditional remote, which uses infrared (IR) signals. It must be aimed at the equipment because it requires line of sight. The second is the much more convenient radio frequency (RF) remote, which uses radio signals and does not require aiming. See IR remote control, RF remote control and voice remote control.
