1951 Philco TV remote control?
1951 Philco TV remote control?

I'm preparing a PowerPoint lecture and want to mention remote control technology for TVs.

An old post on ARF mentions a wired remote control for a Philco 51-T2176 television.

Supposed to have a spring loaded wire reel with pendant switch head.

Are there any advertisements or service literature showing the mechanism? All I've found is one picture of a chassis but it of such low resolution as to be useless for my needs.

Here's an ad with a remote on it.  Not realhigh res though. Click on the 192k image.
Thanks for the link. I don't know why, but when I went to Google Images for my Philco search, it was not there but when I searched again later, there it was...

That will fill the bill for now...

All the best,
The ETF has a scan of the Sams Photofact for this set that contains service info and photos of the remote mechanism.  Start on page 27 (PDF page 26).

Philco 51-T2176 Sams Photofact 132-10
Great! - Did not know TV Sams were out there...
