I'm looking for a big button universal remote for my grandfather to control his Sky and TV. I've seen a few on Amazon but nothing sold locally other than one from K-Mart and the last thread on here went unanswered but that was a few years ago so ... Has anyone got any suggestions?

 

 

 

Cheers.

I bought one of the FLipper bib button remotes for a partners dad who had Parkinsons and he was able to use it for a while with all the tremors and shaking.  Pretty cheap and easy to program.  Never found anything local.

I bought a One For All remote from ListeningPost.co.nz.
It's not really a big button remote but it's a nice simple design with power buttons for TV + sky box, channel up/down and volume up/down. It was easy to program.

Cheers,
Joseph

Thanks for your reply, I've already ordered a Flipper remote but will keep this in mind if it doesn't work out.
