A few years back I was in a friend of a friends house. He had a basic H/T setup. I remember his phone rang and he picked up his remote, pointed it at the TV and was able to talk to the person calling, through the TV. I was thinking of this the other day and was wondering how this can be done. Anyone ever here of it??

Ya. Must be about 20 or 25 years ago now that my dad bought our family's first remote control 25-inch TV. It was a Zenith. It had a speakerphone built into the TV. You could press the phone button on the remote, the TV sound muted, and presto...your caller is on speakerphone.

Not really new technology, but not very useful either. Must be why you never see it much anymore. Was a great novelty at the time, though.
