Test for what? And are your remotes RF or IR?

I can't personally help as that is not my field. I ask these questions because more details are needed for a reply.

Re: How can I test remote control for television ?

If there aren't any standards (I doubt there are), there are plenty of books out there on how to set up Operational Test and Evalution. I'd probably start with a range test - how far away can you get from a "standard" TV receiver and have at least 90% of the time the signal received and properly interpreted? If you don't have enough physical distance to do that, put some sort of interference between the remote and the receiver. Then trend those results over time to see if remotes are getting better or worse on that capability.

Primarily need to sit down and say - what does the customer expect from a remote (along the lines of "it works") and does your remote do that reliably?

To add to Steve's reply - What do you have on your spec sheet for the device (and how were the specifications for the remote developed?)?

Thanks, Marc. And there probably should be criteria like - does the remote interfere with cell phones and other radio devices and vice versa. Since it is a RF remote, then there are FCC requirements for interference.

I decided to do these tests;

Battery life test
Range test
Key-press life test
EMI test

Could you add to another test ?

Sounds like a good start to me. Meanwhile, do you have any customer complaint information? That may point the way to other tests that might be desirable.
