A remote control system, particularly for television sets, includes a remote control receiver and a remote control transmitter. The receiver and transmitter are switched to the menu mode by means of a menu key. At least two menu fields are associated with the remote control receiver and are displayed on the screen of the television set. The menu fields are individually selectable by means of the remote control transmitter. The selection is preferably accomplished by manually aligning the remote control transmitter with the displayed menu field to be selected.
