I'm looking to provide Satellite Radio for my 91-year-old mother in law who's in a nursing home. I've glanced at the available equipment and nothing seems suited. She does have a window facing south so I think we could get reception. Here's the requirements:
-- Extremely simple remote control. She's in a wheelchair with limited mobility. She couldn't really get to a box and punch the buttons directly. She is also very easily confused by new gadgets. Ideally it would play as a set of channels over the TV so she could use the TV remote she's familiar with but I don't know if that's possible. We have Time Warner Cable -- they have music channels with digital cable but nothing suitable for elderly people.
-- Small footprint. Room is cluttered with pictures, plants, etc.
-- Programming like 30's-40's music, news, PBS, sports talk.
I've also considered putting in a cable modem with wireless and doing Internet radio, but haven't found a solution for that either that is simple and small enough.
I thought I'd throw this out there for the bright people with experience in this field. Thanks for any help.
