    My parents have a simple set-up. TV, VCR, Direct TV and a DVD player they never use.

    The direct TV remote also controls their TV, however it keeps losing its memory. Changing batteries doesn't seem to help. I'd like to get them a new remote. But it needs to be really easy to use. Extremely idiot proof.

    Ideally I'd like to be able to program 2-3 macros for them.

    I love my MX-500 and it is simple to use but it would be overkill for their needs.

    Any suggestions? I'm going to check out remote central but I always value the advice I get here.

    You might consider a One for All 8811, a Radio Shack 15-2104 or 2116 or a Sony RM-VL900.
