How do I control two servo motors?

I am a beginner in this area, but been looking around on google for info on servo motors. What is the absolute simplest way to control two servo motors (for a video camera pan and tilt head), from the same unit? I don't want to go wireless (radio controlled), but instead keep it wired. Is it even possible to control pan and tilt with one single joystick? I could really need a beginners tutorial on this... Thanks for your answers!

Wifi enabled remote

Hi, I have a remote for my fireplace.  It uses a RF of 303.87 mhz.  I was trying to think of a way to build something that could recieve a message over wifi that would then trigger the 'buttons' on the remote.  I found some RF receiver/transmitters but everything is for 315 or 430 mhz.  Will those work for 303.87? Or was this remote designed to not be easily cloned?

The speaker set is only controllable via the remote and I know it's an infrared remote. It isn't a reciever the subwoofer has the screen to tell you what volume it's at on the front. Will a universal remote work or can a make a new remote somehow to control the volume of all the options on the original remote which includes, volume up and down for the center speaker, volume up and down for the surround, volume up and down for the bass, and volume up and down for overall volume.

The face is made of cardboard and spray foam and is mounted on a piece of plywood that is hinged to the table. Should i try to use a remote controlled solenoid to pull this gag off? Any better recommendations? It should be remote but I could probably hide a wire if there is a different and more reliable system. All advice welcome!!!! Thanks, D

Remotely controller beeping device

I'm a real Noob to this electronics thing (but I find it fascinating..). Anyway, I want to try to build a device that beeps. The duration  of the beep is fixed, but the frequency and pitch should be variable, depending on user input. The whole device should be as small as possible and water proof. I would prefer to be able to control the beep frequency and pitch remotely - perhaps from a mobile phone or from something like a remote controller. The beeping unit should be kept simple as possible. Any ideas on how I can achieve this? Thanks, Yossi

Need to operate a timer with a remote

I have a 6 Volt radio frequency remote control pair and a separate board with a 5 to 12 Volt timer circuit that turns power off to a load after 1 to 300 seconds. The timer circuit uses capacitors and resistors including a variable resistor plus a 555 too plus jumpers from Amazon.com to see a picture,it lists as: GEREE Timer Relay Switch 1-300 second 5V 9V 12v DC input TIME OVER RESET Delay. Will it work if I connect the RFRC to power and then from there wire to the timer and then wire the timer to my load so that I can remotely make the timer circuit  operate my load for the set time? I ask so as not to burn a thing that takes weeks to get. Will the 1 channel remote control receiver's single relay reset back into a NO condition from NC after current stops flowing from the battery power and through he remote control's 5 pin relay into the capacitor(s) of the timer circuit, that is to say, will the remote relay reset to NO after the timer's single relay goes back from NC to NO after the capacitor(s) run out of charge? As a note, I have had very little success finding a remote controlled timer in the 6 Volt range. 12 Volt remotes with timers are easier to find but that is too much power, size and expense for my application. Know of a supplier? If I have enough of this correct to make sense then any wisdom in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Vince
