Fobis Technologies Weemote dV Reviewed
Kids' remote offers learning technology, new design

RC News Story
Fobis Technologies Weemote dV As audio/video technology marches on, so does remote control design. The Fobis Technologies Weemote, first introduced back in 2000, promised to make television viewing both easier and safer for children. As later Weemote models were enhanced to work with a wider variety of devices, Fobis has obviously kept their eye on other areas where a kids’ remote would be appreciated.

I’m pleased today to announce our review of the Weemote dV, a brand new remote featuring a completely updated design that should help make DVD viewing a more independent activity for kids all over. The new Weemote dV is a durable, preprogrammed and learning remote control with only a few buttons for easy, intuitive digital video device control. So just what is the Weemote dV capable of, and how does it relate to other Weemote models? You’ll have to read our full review to find out!

File area updates.
As I look through the What’s New archives, I’m amazed to notice that it has been almost 8 months since we last informed you of recent uploads to the remote control file area. So, without further ado, here’s what’s new!

To begin with we’ll cover new file areas. Anyone looking for a remote control manual will want to look in the Miscellaneous section which contains, among other things, over 340 different universal remote control manuals for Sony, One For All, RCA, Philips/Magnavox, Radio Shack, Zenith and a wide variety of other brands. As always, we need your content – if you have a manual for a remote control not listed, please take the time to upload it! Although we prefer original manufacturer PDF files, we can also process your high resolution scans into nice PDF documents that anyone can view.
