I once have a tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 GT-P5210) that has an IR blaster built to it.
I sometimes use it to control the TV on our house if the remote is lost.
Now, I don't understand that if I use it to control the TV, they are saying that the TV will be damaged.
Is this true, or is this some kind of a myth, so that only the "traditional and usual" way of controlling appliances (which is the remote) will only be followed?
Like, the technology is improving, and we now have an IR remote built on our phones and tablets, but we should still use the remote built for that appliance?
