Shortly after I became a "cable guy," the first cordless converters became
available. They used "ultrasound"...and at that time I could still hear
the notes produced by most of the buttons on the remotes!
As well, one of the strangest service calls I did was from a woman whose
complaint was, "Every time I try to select CITY (cable 17)...my cat bites me!
No idea why said feline objected to the particular frequency...which it
could, of course, hear perfectly...
