I've always felt it would be really cool for Harmony to come out with a senior friendly remote. I have the 880 and the backlit color display is quite vivid. You can also go into the setup and change the display to an even bigger, single column display instead of the default, which is two columns. So that part I would describe as senior friendly. However, the 880 totally fails the senior test in the buttons department. Even though the buttons are backlit, they are tiny, and the text on the buttons even tinier. So I can't recommend the 880, or any other Harmony come to think of it, as being a good choice for a senior citizen.

I need to get a easy-to-use universal for my step-father for Christmas. A lot of emphasis on easy-to-use/understand. I have two Home Theater Master models and find them intuitive and easy to use but I have never tried the Harmony line.
Which brand do you all think would be easier to use (I will do the programming, so no worries there) for someone who gets easily confused by all things electronic?
Pretty simple set up: TV, DVD, Tivo, Comcast digital cable box.
Hoping to order one today to get here in time for the holidays. Thanks in advance!
P.S. - if your recommendation is Harmony any thoughts on model given the above setup would be greatly appreciated since I am just not familiar with their offerings.
