Arms trader Brad Whitaker (played by Joe Don Baker) is using a Philips AV5600 Remote Control in The Living Daylights (1987).

We first see Whitaker use the remote control when he shows General Pushkin (John Rhys-Davies) the weapons in the drawers under his military display case.

Later in the film, Whitaker controls the light and sound effects of his toy soldier display of the 1815 Waterloo Battle with the Philips AV5600.

James Bond (Timothy Dalton) interrupts Whitaker's game and points his gun at Whitaker, who then uses the remote control to suddenly open a weapons drawer, causing Bond to lose his balance.

After James Bond strikes back and Whitaker meets his Waterloo, 007 himself uses the Philips remote control to turn off the light and sound effects of the display, and he throws the remote away.

The Philips AV5600 is a remote control for the Philips VR2340 VCR. The video recorder is as far as we know not visible in the film.

The now vintage AV5600 remote control can sometimes be found on eBay.

Philips Electronics was one of the official partners of The Living Daylights and several Philips products can be prominently seen throughout the film, including a key-finder that doubles as a bomb, a car radio in Bond's Aston Martin V8, and a walkman used by Soviet assassin Necros.

Philips has provided many products for multiple Bond films, see an overview here.
