Maybe some one here can help me to find one like this. I'm not however, interested in Harmony remotes.


I want a basic, inexpensive, "no-brainer" that even a Grandma with Alzheimer's can operate. It only needs to control two devices; a Sony HDTV and a Scientific Atlanta cable box. Compact & light weight are preferred. The keys must also be back lit for easy viewing in dim light.


It must however, not require keying back & forth from TV to CBL like most inexpensive remotes do. I want to simply press the "On/Off"; then be able to change volume level &/or channels while viewing TV. When done, I want to just press the "On/Off" to shut it down.


I understand that this means the cable box will always be on - that's OK with me.


Best regards, Richard

Check THIS out.

"This remote can be used with a cable ready TV, but not with TVs that use a cable or satellite box."


Thanks for replying but I have a cable box (not cable ready). Additionally, (minor point) Arthritis friendly buttons are not needed.


Although it's got a lot of unnecessary capability, this GE remote is similar to what I have in mind. Downside is you have to jump back & forth on the TV & CBL keys to use it.
