    Anyone on this great site have any idea if and when the Rc71 will become black lit. Man it is hard to get used to the remote after using a black lit all these years, I guess the learning curve. And i do not like turning up the light all the time.

    Use an old backlit remote.

    I do think that with a little practice you might be able to simply feel out the remote, (thats how i use mine, but always have too) but with that said, unless you need rf, you can use your old backlight remote for now till they get a backlit version of the new remote out,
