Do you like it smaller with fewer buttons?
Looks ugly to me, but I don't like the old DirecTV remote either.
Ditto on the ugly front.
I'd never use one. Ill stick with Harmony
Why issue a new flagship HOME MEDIA CENTER and give it a Coby bedroom TV remote?
Don "like hunting for bears with a 22" Bolton
With no color or PIP buttons.
I'll stick with my original NFL backlit one.
I haven't seen a DirecTV remote in ages. Don't need'em. Don't want'em.
I like the VOL and CH toggles.
The peanut is back!
I like the idea of the remote being smaller and having fewer buttons, but I don't particularly like this design. I also like that they've effectively eliminated the need for most of the color buttons now. However, they've given too much weight to the directional buttons and too little weight to the "Trick Play" buttons.
While I don' really care for it, this is one thing I do like on this remote!
Yuck. That one fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch coming down. It's ugliness is complemented with it's colors.
I like that play and pause share a button. I can never find the pause button in the dark with the RC65 series.
For play/pause/ff/rew logic, you can't beat a TiVo peanut remote.
This would have made a good third option for the poll.
3) N/A - I use a universal remote
Digging the new Harmony Touch I picked up last week. Shelved the 880 and 900 and haven't looked back.
I'm getting to old to learn a new remote layout!
I had the opportunity to use this remote a few weeks ago when I stayed at a Hampton Inn. I loved it. It was perfectly sized. Very easy to use for those not familiar with DirecTV.
Granted, I have a Harmony One in my theater room, so I will not be replacing that with this remote. I would certainly prefer one of these in my other rooms where I have the standard D* remote.
What?! You didn't put it in your suitcase along with the towels and tiny bottles of shampoo? ;-)
I prefer a backlit remote. This is an adaptation of the commercial unit. I think it looks like an unattractive cell phone but feedback on the commercial side has been positive so here it it.
