haha I have one of those, but it would only make things worse.Here is an oversized remote that works with a Tivo (Premiere):
Seriously the only way one of those you are talking about would work with Tivo would be if it could learn commands. I don't know if those can do that or not.
You could try entering the code for a Philips VCR.haha I have one of those, but it would only make things worse.
It's for an older person that just needs to be able to read the buttons and I saw a really cheap one at bed bath and beyond, but it was no good. I think you might be right.
When I got my first S1, a used Philips, from a fellow Slashdotter whose roommate had moved away to parts unknown and left it behind several years earlier, it came with no remote.Philips equipment usually uses their proprietary RC-5 or RC-6 protocol. TiVos use a modified version of the NEC-1 protocol. They're totally different critters.
