Use Digital Camera to troubleshoot a TV remote control

Let's say your remote control for your television set has stopped working.
You install new batteries in the remote control, and it still does not work.
Do you call the TV repairman or go buy a new remote control?
Neither .... you go get your digital camera.
Turn on the digital camera, and have it in recording mode.
That is the mode, ready to take a picture.
Now place your remote control in front of the digital camera lens (2 to 3 inches from the lens).
Look at the LCD screen on the digital camera.
Press a button on the remote control and you should see the infrared light or lights from the remote control in the LCD.
