i found an assistive devices site but there was nothing there for tv. most everything else but no tv changers.

i did see one gadget that was used for pushing buttons that had a round handle a little bit larger than a roll of quarters with a spike coming out of it for pushing microwave buttons etc. might be adaptable for changer use if there was strength in arms to move it. 13.95 their price but a nail through a piece of broom handle or dowel would work the same. you just need a handy friend to experiment for you. just another idea.
