The DVD remote control is an infra-red remote control for the PlayStation 2 designed to allow easier control of DVD movies. The first remote SCPH-10150 came bundled (as SCPH-10170) with an infra-red receiver dongle SCPH-10160 which attached to one of the PlayStation 2's controller ports; this dongle is not needed on later PS2 models (beginning from SCPH-500xx) and slimline PS2 models (SCPH-700xx to SCPH-900xx) as they feature an integrated IR port.
There are two different models of the DVD remote control released, which only had minor differences. The first released is the SCPH-10150. The second, SCPH-10420, is functionally and visually identical apart from the addition of eject and reset/power buttons. However the eject button will only work on PS2 models SCPH-100xx to -500xx, as the slimline PlayStation 2 models had no motorized disc tray to eject.
Both versions of the remote feature all the standard PS2 buttons in addition to DVD playback controls.
