The Wii U GamePad Is Also A Nifty Universal TV Remote

By simply pressing the TV Control Button on the Wii U GamePad, you’ll have access to digital buttons that allow you to control the television as if you’re using a designated TV remote. The digital buttons, which appear on the new controller’s 6.2 inch touchscreen, allow you to turn your TV on and off, change channels, switch between various inputs, and control volume. The Wii U GamePad’s digital buttons can also function with cable boxes.

    1. I’m hoping for an auto search function I cba inputting shit loads of codes to get my tv or cable box to work with the game pad. Some codes only give you certain functions like volume and channel change no input change :-/

        1. I think it was IGN the recently had an article about someone taking one home to play around with. Apparently its exactly that you simply select the brand of tv etc and it scans for thr code on its own.

          1. Yup, it was IGN. Take a look for the article. The guy said he has connected to two TVs, and both times took him a few moments. You choose your manufacturer I think and it goes from there

          1. So this is just random, but nintedward, you’re European and you have a 3DS right? Do you have all of the spot pass Nintendo letterbox stationarys for Europe? I’m just wondering cause I want to have all of the stationarys. I can give you NA and Japan ones. Also if you have Pokemon I can also give you pokerus.

  1. And people still persist on calling the wiiu current gen. There should be a concentration camp for people who think the wiiu is current gen.

    1. As a Jew who had his Grandfather survive the Holocaust I don’t wish that kind of fate on anyone. Luckily he was able to hide and didn’t go to a camp, but still.

        1. Mike Is just being an attention seeking whore

          Not enough love since he is a jew. An inferior being

          Throw the jew down the well – borat

      1. Hey, No offence to any ethnicity’s nor did I refer to any. (I suppose I kinda did by accident) But my point is , I just can’t believe there is people who persist with calling the wiiu current gen, it’s getting beyond retarded now.

        Yeh I should of thought about such people as yourself before making such a comment. I’m the least racist guy you could meet :)

        1. No offense taken, just putting it out there. You should be careful about word choice on the internet though, not everyone would take it as lightly as I do.

          1. I know. I honestly wasn’t refering to jewish people , just to a place where all people who think wiiu is current gen should be taken and beaten .

            Although I do realise even that is offensive :S.

      2. Your a JEW???Grandpa was in the Holocaust???If you become what you eat wouldn’t that make cannibals the only normal person???????
