hi all,
        a couple of nights ago i was at someones watching tv when teh
channels changed automaticly which i thought was strange anyway i looked
outside and saw someone over the road changing the channels with a remote my
question is this is it possible that univeral remote can change the channels
if they know the brand of tv or the people have made some kind of remote
that can change tv remotes which its not a bad practical joke

any information would be appreciated

Some remotes are already pre-programmed with certain makes and models
etc
But considering that remotes are IR based, it is unlikely they would
work from that sort of distance anyway. Some barely work in the same
room...

I would look in the room first.  Did they have compact fluorescent globes?
These can sometimes play havoc with remote control devices.

Some people have made a device that spits out the 'off' command for most TVs
one after another as a protest of TVs invading pubs.
