Well, could be that not all remotes for each pinchy device might provide color
keys at all or in this order. But if they are somehow TV oriented, they follow
this order in a global manner, even the M$ ones, if they have colored keys.
You want an evidence? Just check out the universal remotes form the big three
manufactures, Philips, Logitech & One-for-All, if the devices do offer colored
keys, the order is RGYB, nothing left, nothing right, and you should really ask
And, the most important point, global standard or not, it has been defined as
standard in VDR a century ago, and this is a fact.
