    The numbers and words are starting to wear off the buttons on the Sat remote for the kids downstairs HT. Do any of you guys have any suggestions besides investing the $ for a universal learning remote for them. I was wondering if one of those paint pens would do the trick followed by a light topping of lets say the wifes clear nail polish, and for how long.

    As I told my youngest, 8 years old, "No, Dad isn't going to buy you guys an MX-500 like Dad has for the family room system". But I do have to admire him for asking.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

    Your solution should work. In using the clear nail polish try to cover in one or two swipes to prevent it from smearing the underlying new paint.

    Couldn't help but laugh at that one! You're certainly raising him right! [​IMG] Kinda like my 12-year-old daughter - she keeps bugging me for my Sennheiser headphones to use with her portable CD player. [​IMG]

    Guess the apples aren't falling too far from the trees.

    The paint-pen should work. How about an extra-fine or ultra-fine-point Sharpie marker?
