Remote control for low vision senior

Have a Sony TV series 8000, with a non controlled cable box, which is ON at all time.

Tried a number of remotes on the market but they can not deal with this type of box. Tried to talk with Customer service at Comcast  in Philippines and could not help.  Please , need help
