    You raise an interesting question, WHAT kinda remote does a vcc2000 have? ours also had the IR receiver fitted (though I'd have to ask my dad if he fitted it himself or bought it like that)
    but all I remember is that we a special remote that worked on both the tv and vcr. (still have it, apparently had some tea spilled on it in the early 90s so not sure if it even works)
    but yeah.. what would be the right remote control for such a thing?

    The IR receiver unit actually has two parts to it. There's the "eye" part that fits in the front and then a type of screw on module thingy that connects with a short cable to the port labelled "remote control" at the back of the unit. You need both for the remote to work. Later V2000 machines I believe had a built-in remote sensor.

    I'm not sure which was the original "official" control for this particular model but as far as I know the Philips AV5600 remote should work with this unit.

    Provided the batteries were taken out, it should be doing fine.

    I have two CRTs and a VCR hooked up and working in the other room. Prob mentioned it before but no longer working. I do have this 1953 GE Ultravision TV that I use as a stand for my modern HDTV. I love older tech. Wish I still had my transitor radios. Donated them to an online tech podcast years ago.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    The closest I have to something like that is the remote for my SJT-400 CED player.

    How about old tech that millennials are familiar with. I still got MP3 players in the box behind me.

    It was actually quite light, and I hardly call it awful. mine looks quote nice and a lot less scruffy.
    I miss larger remote controls.

    I've got remotes absolutely everywhere. I'd seek out one of those Harmony remotes with the touchscreens and whatnot, but then I realized I only use my remotes like twice a year when testing the hardware I have plugged in and hooked up. Though, what is the deal with (older) universal remotes being made to look goofy?
