Large button remote controls
We have a considerable number of searches for big button remote controls to replace existing devices for TVs, DVDs, Sky boxes etc.
We've had a little look around. None of those mentioned here have been tried, tested or reviewed; we would welcome any feedback on how good these replacement large button controls actually are.
Looking around the internet for big button remote controls we have unearthed ..
The Big Button Remote available from abilityanswers.com.
The Big Button Remote visibly looks the ideal solution but please note it is NOT compatible with NTL/Telewest cable boxes, and 'TV/VCR or TV/DVD combi' units. Current compatibility with 'Freeview' boxes is also apparently limited.
Easy to Read! The extra large buttons of the BIG BUTTON Remote Control have big, readable characters. The lighted buttons are very large and they all light up at the touch of any button.
It may be suitable for some, and at the time of writing is priced at £24.99
A more encompassing remote control, but with visibly smaller buttons is the CM601, 5-in-1 Universal Remote Control available from uni-remotes.co.uk
With the same large easy-to-see buttons, the CM601 allows you to control up to 5 devices (1 x TV, 1 x DVD/VCR and 3 x Satellite Receivers)
* Fast reliable set up (just a few seconds)
* works like a regular remote control: from TV to VCR with no switching or special handling
* operates virtually all the functions of the original including Zoom, Brightness, Colour, Contrast, Menu and TUNING
* large keys for increased comfort
* ultra powerful infra-red beam
* uses standard 1.5v AAA batteries
Available to UK and European shoppers only please at present, it is priced at £25 +p&p at the time of writing.
If your television can only be tuned in using the remote control, you must use the CM601 or a direct replacement for the original remote control. Most Universal remote controls will only perform the basic functions.
If you have found a better large button remote control available anywhere, or you have used any of these, we would love to hear from you.
