The new remote has a serious flaw that cannot be overlooked. I can overlook many problems but not this one: The skip forward button is located just above and very near to the channel up/down rocker. The slightest miss while watching a show that is still being recorded (read ball games) and you will be rudely jerked out of your game and have no easy way to get back to your place. Because the remote isn't backlit this affliction can and does happen a lot. Previously recorded shows are a little better since you can resume the show when you find it again. Whoever designed or approved this remote had their head you know where. Yuck. The problem can be solved if Dish swaps the volume and channel rockers. Dish this was a baby mistake in remote design.
