Hi, I'm looking for a remote for the older people (like 80 and up).

I don't know anything about universal remotes, so I don't if what I want even exists. But right now I don't have a clue were to look, so I how you guys can give me some ideas.

First of all it needs real buttons, and bigger is better.
Secondly it needs a few customizable buttons that can do a few actions with one button press. Like:

Button A:
- Switch TV to HDMI1,
- Turn on settopbox(stb).
- Set channel 1 on stb.
Button B:
- Switch TV to HDMI1
- Turn on settopbox(stb).
- Set channel 2 on stb.
Button C:
- Switch TV to HDMI2,
- turn on TV receiver
Button D:
- Select channel 9 2 5 on the TV with just one button press.

Power On button:
- Send On command to multiple devices with one press
Power Off button:
- Send Off command to multiple devices with one press

I understand that to be able to do this the devices need discrete commands. For now let's just assume that they do.

Any URC remote will do these functions.
