Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Do you feel it will add value to the consumers if digital clock display is added for all the remote controls of products purchased viz TV, AC, DVD, CHANDELIER etc

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
This feature has been on some remote controls for various electronic products in times past with little perceived benefit to the users.

The added cost and to some users added confusion to the operation of the remote I cannot recommend it this time.  Sorry.

Further, many of the products operated by remote controls have time information already included.  For example, many tv sets have time information available on the display screen.
