    This may be an odd question but here goes. When I received my tuning adapter from Spectrum the ends of the coaxial cable included had a large plastic knob which made it much easier to screw on to the TiVo and the TA. I make most of my own cables and would love to find these as I have arthritis and this makes it so much easier to screw on. I have looked everywhere on line with no luck. Does anyone know if they have a specific name or where to buy them?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I know exactly what you mean, they were all the rage for a couple of years, then seem to have vanished off the face of the earth. I can only assume one company got a patent on the idea, made a go of it, then gave up. Haven't seen them since.

    Thanks for the replies! I think i'll try the Finger Saver listing you showed on eBay. Looks like it will do pretty much the same thing as I want, the wrench is also a great idea.
