I noticed this on the web page before I'd read your mini review, and am
forced to agree. My primary uses for any universal remote would be to
drive a Topfield PVR with MyStuff UI upstairs, and a Virgin Media V+ box
downstairs, both of which have very specific functions on the colour

It would be difficult enough for me to look to the screen every time I
needed one of those functions (or to remember what alternate button I'd
remapped it to) but my fiancee simply wouldn't be able to cope if the V+
box was saying "Press Yellow to delete" and there was no yellow button
to press.

If we end up with a Harmony remote it looks as though it'll be the 555
or 785. The physical buttons are a must.
