So many buttons, so little use
These represent the number of remotes I own and use. Don't you think electronics manufacturers should have come up with a standard for Remote Control so that you don't have to re-learn every single remote that you encounter?
I know you can configure so called "universal remotes" (like each one of them on the picture above) to control the basic stuff (play/pause/rewind/fast-forward etc) but you cant control each and every functionality (Input selection/sorround/DVR etc) of the individual remote.
It seems like a perfect opportunity for someone to step right in and fix it.
