¿Como se dice "Reprogram the remote"?

Can anyone recommend a good, inexpensive English-Spanish lexicon of TV/Cable/Broadcast technology terms? My sister does Spanish-language technical support for a large TV cable and Internet provider. She's first-language fluent in Spanish, but like many Spanish-speaking U.S. natives, leans heavily on Spanglish for many of the neologisms ("el remote") of the electronic age.

That's fine for all the U.S.-born Latinos she speaks with who know as much Spanglish as she does, but for more recent arrivals from Spanish-speaking countries, she needs to know the real Spanish words.
So, I'm looking for a good, inexpensive English-Spanish lexicon of TV/Cable/Broadcast technology terms, or, better yet, a reliable web page. Stuff that includes Internet terminology is a bonus, but not the primary concentration. It's mainly about TV, cable, wireless remotes, set-top boxes and the like.
