FYI - I have worked in the field of electronics for over 30 years. I started with basic electricity classes in high school. I joined the Marine Corps and went to school for metrology. (No I'm not a weatherman) I was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma where I repaired and calibrated avionics test equipment. (equipment used to test the electronic systems on board fighter jets)
After my tour in the USMC I went to work for Hughes Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ. (now called Raytheon) in the Standards and Calibration Lab writing procedures and certifying the test stations for TOW, MAVERICK and PHOENIX missiles. I accepted a job offer from a government contractor and was in put in charge of the ARBS program at the Marine Corps Air Station Tustin. (Angle Rate Bombing System)
I moved to Arizona and started my own satellite business installing, aligning, programming and repairing C/Ku satellite systems. I am currently a Directv commercial dealer and have provided all technical services for the bar and restaurant industry for the last 20 years. I install camera, audio and video systems.
You state the purpose of your website is to "help" people. First I must say as this is my first day/first post I've never received such a rude welcome by such a bunch of "idiots" to coin a phrase. (you know who you are) My credentials speak for themselves. I offered this information "TO HELP" people who may of encountered this problem. Being in the electronics industry for 30 years I am always happy to learn of new technology. You don't have to believe me, go to the web site and see the product for yourself. (I would advise not to send the $5000 to the prince from Somalia) Its been my experience that most bar owners are cheap. When a TV goes bad, they replace it with whatever brand is on sale. They end up with a dozen remotes because they have many different brands of TVs. I found the Bar Buddy remote was the answer to that problem. So the purpose of my post was to "OFFER HELP and a SOLUTION" to a problem I've encountered when it comes to REMOTES. I thought that was what this web site was all about - excuse me! Instead I see it is a place for "some" members just to be a smart ass. I read multiple posts and saw many "smart ass" replies. I don't see how that HELPS anyone and find it hard to take this site seriously if the people in charge allow, encourage or participate in the negative snide remarks.
So a combined total of 50 years in electronics and a/v, and you had no idea that real control systems are already on the market. I see why you were so successful working for the government.
