original Sony KV-36FS70/U remote. It does not need any form of programming - just insert batteries and it is ready to use.The ClassicŪ range of remote controls has been a popular choice of the professional TV servicing industry across Europe for over a decade. Unlike more generic replacements, each individual ClassicŪ remote control is custom-designed to operate EVERY function of the original remote that they replace. The case style itself has been designed for sturdiness and reliability, whilst the buttons and text are optimised for visibility and ease of use. To meet the demands of the servicing industry, the materials and components used within the remote are carefully specified to produce a thoroughly reliable product.Usage notes: As a replacement for the Sony KV-36FS70/U remote, the position of some buttons may be different to the original remote control. Where one ClassicŪ remote control replaces a handful of original remote controls, some with more features than others, there may be one or two buttons which in some cases are redundant. This remote control is an economic, functional replacement (i.e. not a Sony branded original remote control). Please view the product image to see the part which will be supplied.
Incredible picture and sound quality, S-Video inputs so you can hook it up to your PC. Reasonable surround sound out of the box.
Incredibly heavy, it will take three people to lift. Also quite thick so it will create a lot of dead space behind it.

Over many years Sony TVs were considered as the sharpest in the world. This advantage, provided thanks to the Trinitron picture tube, shrank in the course of the last years, but now the Japanese have again the nose in front. New digital technique " DRC " produces a picture with such detail wealth one could only have dreamt so far. This 36" Color Widescreen WEGA TV with DRC delivers the finest picture from Sony - ever! DRC-MF (Digital reality Creation-Multi Function) increases picture resolution by up to 400% (similar to line doubling). The KV36FS70 has two tuners, so that in the PIP mode (Picture and Picture) two programs can be seen. The pictures are completely variable in their relative importance. With Multi PiP around the current picture, 12 small fixed images from the other programs are structured, which gives you an outline of the channels. The combination of picture and text is just as comfortable. Altogether the KV-36FS70 is a television with a picture of the absolute reference class.
