Where to start on remotes!
Why does every TV manufacture feel the need to make their remotes "universal"?
They added a switch so it can run a TV, DVD player, cable box etc but they won't even put in dedicated buttons for inputs, instead you have to cycle thru all of them to get where you want to be.
For crying out loud, just make the remote control what ever it comes with & do it right instead of trying to control everything half assed!
Really, I don't need 12 DVD control buttons in the middle of my TV remote!
I don't need a damn button that if it gets bumped my remote thinks it's now controlling a piece of equipment I don't even own because I didn't program in anything else to my TV remote & now I have to figure out why it won't change channels!
I use none of my factory remotes except the one for my Playstation 3 because it's bluetooth everything else is run with my Harmony 880.
Ok what was this thread about again?
Oh yea back lighting.
Well for me back lighting is only important when the remote is new, after a while I don't even need to look at it anymore I just go by touch.
Which is a good thing because the 880's back lighting is kinda weak!
