Out of the blue I received an email from someone working at a electronics firm, wanted know if I had Memorex CP8 Turbo, which I did. If it had date code 1991 or before, it was worth $500 to them, mine was dated DEC 1990. Smile

I didn't ask why, they were willing to send a Turbo with 1992 date back for my collection. The original memorex CP8 and Radio Shack 1901/1901A had the same features, and all were made before 1991? all I know is firm had nothing to do with these models, I can't think of remote at the time made by them. i'm keeping the name a secret.

This was posted two days after the check was cut, and they received the remote:

I am thinking it has to be something to do with a patent.

Either that, or some guy more nuts over remotes than the people here, and that isn't too likely Razz

It wasn't Daniel Tonks who paid the Bounty, so try offering it him at Remote Central?
