Hope you guys can help.
My professor is now retired 300 miles from me among the eagle nests.
He is now (83 yo) in dire need of a remote to control his receiver, dvd player, stereo, and tv.
Since he is very dear to me, $ is not a consideration.
What remote would you recommend that would be simple for me to program and more simple for him to use?
Thanks for your help.
The Logitech Harmony remote is good. I'd use a 650 or 700. Learn about discrete codes for on/off and input select. Use them whenever possible.
Customize his activity buttons and after setup walk home through using it once or twice (or 15 times if he's from that generation).
In my experience, elderly folks need a remote that is bulletproof. Harmony remotes are far from bulletproof. I'd go with a URC MX-850. It's been around for almost a decade & doesn't have pretty, full-color graphics, but it plain works.
