VM do provide an Accessibility Remote if you feel that may be easier for him to use. It's white with black buttons and is designed with partially sighted customers in mind. The buttons are different shapes to differentiate them and have a raised button on the number 5 to best locate the number buttons.
There are also some changes that you can make to the screen itself to make it easier for him to navigate: If he has difficulty seeing his screen, both the V6 and TiVo has 'audio cues' which can help him find your way around his menus. These are sounds that show actions and reactions to button presses on the remote control.
A member of the Forum Team should pick this up for you, however it can take from a few days to a week.
You can also contact Customer Support to request the remote.
You could try the text messaging service. Just send a text with a description of raccessibility remote to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible. It may take a few days.
