Old box VS new X1 box

My "old" box allowed me to pre-set channels throughout the day (via RECORD PROGRAM). Does the "new" X1 box allow setting programs throughout the day?
My wife has MS and can't physically operate a remote. Due to her cognition dificulties she's unable to comprehend using voice command.
Pre-programming channels is a big help so that she can watch what appeals to her without having to rely on someone to select or change channels for her.
Should I just keep the "old" box?
