My elderly mom cannot see/utilize the HR20/21 Remote Control. I see on DTV's website a simplier remote with larger buttons. But, it's too small on their website to see the remote ... lol.

Does anyone have a picture of that danged remote that I can click on to actually be able to SEE it so I can see if I want to buy it for her?

TIA

Thanks all. At least (even though its wider) it has fewer buttons, larger buttons, and spells out PLAY, PAUSE, etc. She cannot decipher the other remote at all at age 87. :)

If used with any DIRECTV PLUS receivers, the Big Button remote has a fatal flaw ... no color buttons. There are ways around not having RED and GREEN, but I can't think of any way to mark a program as Keep Until I Delete without having a BLUE key, and there's no way to get to the playlist or TV options without a YELLOW key.

For some people that may be a good thing, keep them from messing up stuff..

A few months ago I got a Fobis "Weemote Sr." (through Amazon) for my mother, who is 88 and has very poor eyesight. It controls an H20 and a TV and just allows for On/Off, Mute, Volume, Channel Up/Down, and 5 preset channels. That's it. The 9 buttons are different colors and shapes. It's all she can cope with.

It cost me $31.45 including shipping. It works well, except that you have to be especially careful just where you point the remote. The On/Off button is supposed to control both the H20 and TV, but to prevent it from turning just one of them on or off, I disabled that button's control of the H20, so I can just leave the H20 on all the time.
