When I saw the new HR20 remote, I noticed the letters printed below the number keys. So I thought that when typing in a title for a search, I would be able to "type" in the title like you type on a cell phone. This is not the case, though.
Windows XP Media Center 2005 allows you to type in the titles in this manner, and usually it ends up with a LOT fewer key presses than scrolling and selecting.
It would be great if the HR20 adopted this feature.
