My mother has a non x1 cable box and a TCL tv, because she is somewhat handicap she dosnt always point the comcast remote at the TV and Cable box when powering on using All/On. When this happens the cable box will come on but the TV will not, because the TV needs more line of sight im guessing. Ive tried to get her to just leave the All/ON button alone and just use the TV ON instead leaving the cable box always on, but she forgets and gets stuck in this loop of the TV off and cable box on, and then the opposite as she hit the All/ON again now pointing at the TV. My question, is there a way to program the remote to not power off the cable box at all when hitting the All/ON, but obviously still use the remote for everything else.

My Mother lives in a senior living facility and all the residents have the same xfinity package, its non x1 service, and she has a RNG110 cable box. She is not capable of hitting the enter button (several strokes) at the prompt to switch to the HD channel, and she cant remember the HD channel numbers. SHe can remember the easy ones like the local channels, 4,5 9,11, etc.. my question is i cannot seem to find a way to default or automatically just switch to the HD channel, the menu is pretty limited and i just cant seem to find a solution. I have programed the HD channels in her favorites and she can cycle through that way, but her memory is pretty bad and she never remembers to use the favorites button. So she has this nice HD TV and really never can take advantage, and on big TV's SD looks terrible. does anyone have an ideas? Thanks.
