Looking for a kid friendly MCE remote. My daughter has destroyed about 4 of mine - so looking for something very simple, yet somewhat durable. I remember seeing something on Amazon but I can't find it now. It was very basic and colorful, simply up, down, left, right, enter, play, stop, forward, reverse, and back, with large buttons. Cant seem to find it any more. Any good options?

I know a few XBMC skins allow for character art and I am looking to create a XBMC box for my kid and have an easy to use remote so she can pick the shows she wants to watch. Thanks in advance.

Ebay shows a pretty wide variety of remotes. Many look pretty simple and durable. Cheap, too.

Simple is possible, durable is far more difficult. Your best bet is to find one you like, then buy several of them. "Durability" can be achieved through sufficient backups. wink.gif

This made me laugh. I guess I should have left out durable. A toddler can break anything. Here is something similar to what I am looking for - kids remote, but wondering if I can get that to work with the computer? The description says all 9 buttons are learn-able so I'm assuming I just program them with my current MCE remote?
