Finding, identifying and manipulating a remote control is daunting

In a container beside my bed are four remote controls. Each of them has a special job and will not cross over and do the job of the other. Of course, there are two controls for the television, but the “big” control is for the television only… the other is the DirectTV control that brings on the news, shows sports, and cost me about a hundred dollars a month. The other television remote (which is red) controls the source of special entertainment… Netflix, Prime, and such. Remote number four is small, thin, and has no numbers or words. Manipulation of arrows will control the moveable parts of my bed. This is an important remote which is not just for Kings and Princes anymore.
