Title: Method of controlling remote control electronic apparatus coupled to a network and a remote control electronic apparatus to be coupled to a network

Abstract: A method of controlling remote control electronic apparatus coupled to a network and a remote control electronic apparatus to be coupled to a network are disclosed. Each remote control electronic apparatus has a CPU and a ROM including a local control program expressed by an independent language which is interpretable by the CPU, a remote control program expressed by a virtual language, a virtual language processing program for processing the virtual language to make it interpretable by the CPU. When one remote control electronic apparatus is required to control another remote control electronic apparatus coupled to the network, the remote control electronic apparatus requests to transmit the remote control program of another remote control apparatus. The remote control electronic apparatus receiving the transmitted remote control program of another remote control apparatus generates an operation command signal using the received remote control program through the virtual language processing program and transmits the operation command signal to another remote control apparatus which is actually operated by the local control program existing in another remote control apparatus according to the operation command signal.
