Cable Boxes - Left Column

The undisputed most annoying LED light comes from your cable or dvr box. DiMMYS can be applied to many electronic devices, but we would be lying if we said we didn’t pay special attention to cable boxes when we selected our materials and sizes. DiMMYS are made from a vinyl material that uses static electricity to cling to most smooth surfaces. The benefit to this approach is two-fold: not only is there absolutely no sticky residue whatsoever, but you can also use and re-use DiMMYS as many times as you’d like. It’s effortless to put a DiMMY on at night to block out that pesky cable box clock, and then take it off in the morning. You can also use Tinted Dimmys to dim cable box lights and leave it on for as long as you’d like. And don’t worry, DiMMYS won’t interfere with your remote control.

The largest cable providers are Comcast, Verizon Fios (not technically cable), Time Warner, Charter Communications, Cox Communications and Cablevision. Since those companies have the greatest number of subscribers we reviewed their various models of cable and dvr boxes to make sure that Dimmys would cover their displays. We reviewed the following models:
