I'm looking from some advice to solve a problem is having.
A friends father is suffering from dementia, and as he's deteriorating he is struggling with navigating the remote control for his TiVo box, and frequently gets stuck on random channels until he gets a visitor
Is there any way that the channels could be changed remotely ? ie from a different house ? we know the app' can do it but it only works if the app is on the same wifi network.
is there any cheats or work arounds for this as it would be a real game changer for the old fella.
Re: Changing Channels remotely ? (from another home)
Yes the older ones are cheap as your not needing HD. You may need to Google for a remote code with the older ones but there are forums that deal with the files needed and how to upload the code to slingbox
