Is there a Remote made for Young Kids?
Posted 29 September 2009 - 04:59 PM
I dont want him to be turning on and off the TV as he may do it 50 times in a row and I dont want him blasting the volume or God forbid getting into menus.
I just want to setup a favorites list that has about 5 or 6 kids channels in it leave it on that in the morning so when he gets home he will be able to just switch between them instead of being stuck on the one channel I leave it on.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.

We have a URC MX-880 for our 5 year old daughter (she's been using it about a year now) and we have the remote programmed with icons of her favorite channels.
When she wants to watch TV, all she has to do is press the icon of her choice and the remote sends commands to turn on the Satellite Receiver, the TV, place it on the correct input, and key in the corresponding channel number.
Variables can also be programmed in the remote so that, for example, if the TV is already on, then only the channel numbers are inputted.
The MX-880 is completely customizable, so if desired, any button can be disabled. A macro can even be programmed so that the volume will always be at a predetermined level. (Or at least to not go any higher).

I think its perfect for a kid though I imagine you'd get a lot of random waving of it, and just channels flashing by constantly
