How can I find out if my remote uses Infrared?

One way to find out if your remote control works with infrared signals is to use the camera on your mobile phone. Simply point your remote control at the camera and make sure the transmitter LED is clearly in the picture. Now hold a button on the remote. If you see a light flickering, you know it's Infrared. Otherwise it's most likely an RF remote.
