I/we pretty much use the following daily: 0-9, up/down/left/right,
ok/enter/exit, epg, recordings, timers, color keys, subtitle,
play/pause/stop/ffw/rew, record, skip +/-... I also like to have a
few keys available for macros.
I haven't found any remote that I felt was perfect. I'd love to
design one with my own specific button layout but the cost to make a
custom remote exceeds my willingness to pay for it so I've got a few
that are good enough.
