  1. When i was young, I had to walk all the way to my neighbor’s house to watch their TV and I didn’t dare touch the channels rotary dial.

  2. I remember my grandpas remote channel changer. It was a little smaller than a toaster oven and sitting on a table next to his easy chair.
    It had a big rotary dial and on/off- volume knobs. When he changed a channel, a servo motor in the TV would churn the dial around to the correct indent, and the whole tv would shake a little. There was a huge wire cable connecting the two. I don’t remember the brand.

    • As soon as I learned my numbers I was the remote channel changer, at my parents and when we went to visit my grandparents over there too. I don’t think anyone got a remote control TV til the 80s, there was nothing wrong with the old ones.

  3. I didn’t have to walk to the TV just let go of the antenna long enough to change the Channel then back on the antenna.
