The Flipper remote works with your TV and cable, satellite or over the air DTV box. It also works with a cable ready TV. Once set up, the On/Off button operates the TV and set top box with only one touch. The Channel buttons operate the set top box, and the Volume buttons change the TV volume. The Favourite Channel feature (optional) allows you to programme up to 30 of your favourite channels, eliminating channel overload. The stylish yet functional design features large tactile friendly buttons, and full function labels for easy use. The setup locks to prevent reprogramming of the TV. It's the only senior friendly remote specially designed for digital broadcast technology. Uses two AAA batteries (not included). Some set up assistance may be required due to age and experience. Easy to set up, simple to use - preset to Motorola cable boxes.
