So true. The only remotes I use are a phillips pronto and the sb remote.
The physical keys are nicer than the touch screen for controlling the
sb.

That's what keeps me from taking the leap for the nokia device, sight
unseen. I really need to have an idea of the feel of touchscreen.

I'm using a URC9911. It is both wonderful, and a curse, to have an RF
remote. Recently, I've learned how to set up the extenders for this
remote and I've been able to reprogram the entire remote with all the
device macros to have the AV system reconfigure as needed for each
device. I also have maps for every remote that I've "learned" and
added to the mix. I finally no longer need any of the others, not even
for backup when some strange, never used command comes up, or the dvd
player decides to react to yet another signal not meant for it. I use
it for squeezebox control as well, but the navigation arrows are not as
"nice" as on the slimn remote, so that stays nearby. The downside, even
while programming it two rooms away, my wife had to be disturbed by
rogue RF commands interrupting her program :) Now if only the cordless
phone was so effective.

I have to remember to post the newest slimserver remote addon for the
urc too. It's way better than my old one.
