Magnavox Remote

There are things that are manly and there are things that are manly. Cigar bars. Saunas at Gentlemen’s Clubs. Old-school steakhouses with dark wood paneling and eighty year old waiters.

Then there’s this beefy block of black and silver plastic with mushy rocker switches for On/Off, UHF, VHF, Color and Volume that might as well have come off the nightstand in Hefner’s bedroom.

Haven’t come up with a date on this Magnavox remote yet, but take a gander.

    Gorgeous, As is your whole collection. I’m going to guess early 1960′s on the date. Now you need to buy all the TVs that match your remotes…

    Saving the tv collecting for some far-off date when I’m in a house out here instead of a big fat studio apartment.

    This remote is for a 1973 Magnavox Videomatic TV. I really need one for my Magnavox console stereo TV combo unit. I would like to purchase your remote, just name a price. My email is

    I’m planning to hang on to this one, but this particular remote comes up pretty frequently on Ebay. I’ll email you the next time I spot one!
