Omg I just checked on google for the manual and It came up in a forum. :o I have this watch for years and couldn't use it because I lost the manual and the thing only has six buttons and isn't really user freindly. before I tried putting the company and then the model # into google but I got nothing. Now that I got the pdf of the manual Ill totally be able to mess with peoples tv's without them knowing and they'll be like SPY SAPPIN MY TELEVISION. Thank you airman for inadverntany making that universal remote control watch work I like owe you something for this. I could even use it as a remote control for my robots if I add an infarred sensor to it. Thank you so much airman ;D

@video: I don't really like the design of it. They could of made it more simple looking so kids would not play with it. It looks to much like a toy. Also, I would like to know the distance it can get to with the IR. Another thing is what is the need for all the wires in the back. Doesn't it just need power?

@ offy

The thing is tethered to a laptop for voice recognition.  Toshiba hasn't put the voice recognition hardware inside the bot yet.

I have a feeling this is going to be one costly remote control for the every day house.
