TV remoting

What can I do to help and elderly (with basic cable) to view programmed/recorded television?


Can I use my laptop at one location to control viewing at another address?


The elederly person is a family member, lives alone, is legally blind and has the small cable box.

Re: TV remoting

there is no way to control another persons tv over the internet.  The comcast apps let you control your tv with the app but it is only for your account.   I guess it is possible for this person to set you up on their account and if that gets done you could change the channels on their tv from your phone or your computer.  Technically that would work.   The small dta cable box has no recording capabilities so I don't know what you mean by recorded tv.

Thanks for the prompt answer.  That's what I thought.
