    Usually just "the remote" but my dad calls it the "oofer doofer" which is pretty random.

    ETA:
    My dad makes up names for everything so its not weird anymore.

    Just a remote for us too. My mums ex used to call it the 'zapper'. My Oh calls it every name under the sun, he comes up with a new name everytime he asks for it.. so half the time I don't know what he means :haha:

    We call them remotes but we've got so many so we have to describe them ie, DVR remote, tv remote, wii remote etc.

'finding memo':haha:
