elcano, looking at a picture of it, it does have transport buttons.
Yeap. They reuse other upper buttons. Nice trick. But bad luck because it is sold out already. ;)

They came in today!

I need to see if there is an "advanced" setup program available. The training wheels are cramping my style! :lol:

I'm giving these another week. They are not growing on me or my family. Too many functions require using the soft buttons at the top, which look to be in alphabetical order by default. :) Also, being an activity-based remote, the lack of an "off" button that operates the currently selected device is a bit to get used to.

Yup, the soft button functions can be rearranged.

I would think that they would already be logically grouped for a device that sells for $130, but I can understand where this design choice came from. I can't, however, understand why many of the soft buttons' descriptions are longer than the screen can display.

Unfortunately, I expected something better than my old JP1-hacked OFA. :)
