Can we change the name of the page to something like "Destiny universal remote" or something like that? Ancient remote control sounds crap Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 22:28, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

DHD in a pocket Edit

i really like the device so far especially the DHD function it lists and refreshes gate addresses. Im wondering if the device has a control crystal built in or is it built into the older stargates Adrianke (talk) (Contribs) 19:39, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

We don't know how it works, but it's unlikely to use crystal technology as the Ancients don't seem to have it in that era. It's more likely that the dialing program is saved on some sort of electrical circuit chip. Seeing as the Blue Aliens couldn't use the gates, I would guess that the dialing program is inside the remotes, not the gates, but I could be wrong.

Size Edit

some mean it is an modet sony psp, so it could have an 4.3 inches large display? 16:50, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Function: Edit

In Lost it was also seen that the remote control had a camera on it that was used to take a picture of the blue alien gate map. Shouldn't that be added to the list of functions-- 19:52, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

I just watched the scene where Eli was messing with the BA systems again and didn't see the camera function... can you point more specifically to where it is shown? Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 20:11, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
He was actually using his iPhone camera to take a picture of the blue alien star map. Oh and I could totally see myself loading tons of apps on that remote control. I also wonder how those remotes would function if they were brought into the Milky Way Galaxy where the stargates are different. General Heed (talk) (Contribs) 01:59, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
I bet they would work in every galaxy in terms of just dialing an address. Question in weather or not they could make a list of adresses or not - if the gates had that function then why not implement it into DHDs? That said, the correlative update system would imply some sort of communication between gates, so it is possible that they do know each others' location, which would allow the remote to search addresses in MW and Pegasus too :D Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 18:59, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
I'd think they'd work elsewhere to, if they work on the early system of gates. possibly with limited range, due to whatever means they use to communicate, it may not be a galaxy wide communication device. I bet dhds dont get it as a security feature, so not just anyone can walk up to the gate and know every gate in the galaxy, they thought only ancients would have the remotes, and so it was fairly secure. DHDs, are less secure, so any programming and data stored in them are kept limited and unable to be accessed. Question might be, why didnt atlantis have these devices in the city somewhere? Or did atlantis itself automatically update things on its computer instead?
Pegasus has a fully-functional network. The remotes are superfluous. Destiny needs them because the planets don't have DHDs. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 23:43, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I think it may be possible to use those remotes at least in the Milky Way. There were a few episodes where a Puddle Jumper was brought to the SGC from Atlantis and they were able to use the Atlantis Puddle Jumpers to dial a Milky Way Stargate. So it may also be possible that the remotes might work on Milky Way Gates. However, in the case of the Puddle Jumpers, they are definitely "backwards-compatible" with the Milky Way Gates. But that doesn't necessarily mean the Ancient Remotes are "forwards-compatible" with newer gates. But even if the remotes can't work in the Milky Way or Pegasus, they could still function as an Ancient-version of the PSP. General Heed (talk) (Contribs) 03:25, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
And, if Tau'ri are able to reverse-engineer technology of these remotes, they will be able to develop their own versions of the remotes, maybe with such features as:
  • ability to dial Milky Way and Pegasus gates;
  • security password:
  • navigational functions, etc.
But it's just a speculation. SV5195R (talk) (Contribs) 18:51, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
The remotes may be able to use the newer gates - but I think it would depend more on the programming of the new gates than the remote itself. Sman789 (talk) (Contribs) 20:32, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
