Thank goodness we can still buy the old style remotes. Just ordered RC66Rx for $8 and change with Prime 2-day shipping from Big River. The RC71 does have good response, but there the usefulness ends. Bad shape, hard to press buttons, poorly laid out (for me at least). And.....I want a stop button!

I like the shape, it reminds me of the old peanut. I don't miss the stop button at all. My only complaint is that it "toggles" the TV whether you push on or off.

I've always used EXIT on DirecTV receivers.  In fact, on my Harmony, I remapped the stop button to open my playlist.


I for sure miss the dedicated play button.  I press that all the time to see how far into the show I'm watching.  I can still do that, but it pauses the show and I have to hit it again to play.  I watch TV the most on my main TV where I have my Harmony.  So, it  is only on the minis in my bedroom and office that I have to suffer.  :)
