'againstme' started a thread before about him using his cable tv remote to set off the laser alert on his v1 (that got way out of hand and was locked for very good reaon). while i was veiling the front of my car yesterday i figure why not give it a try.
so in my friends yard i barrowed her cable tv remote and went out and started to change channels while pointing it at my v1 and yes it did set off the laser alert on my v1.
so then i tested the range at which it picked up the laser alert and saw that it was kinda shotty. so i mounted the v1 just a few inches lower, this time having it right below the edge of the tint strip rather than behind it and i noticed it picked up the laser alert at a better range than before.
so a heads up to anyone trying to figure out the best way to mount your v1 to recieve laser alerts, just mount and test it with one of the remotes in your house. im pretty sure at least 1 of them will do the job. :idea:
