    Currently, each of the remote's buttons sends out a specific code, that doesn't change. To do what you're describing, the Input key would have to not merely send out a code, but change the state of the remote, such that the arrow and select keys would send out completely different codes than they normally do. Presumably, pressing Select would then return it to the normal mode. Or maybe that's something that would have to work differently for different sets? Anyway, it's a significant added layer of complexity for a fairly marginal function, IMHO.

    Actually, what I'd like is TiVo's input button to function the same as the input button on my television's (Vizio) remote control, which is to open the television's source input menu; for it's up and down arrows to work as they should, moving up or down in the input menu; and it's select button to select the chosen input listed in the menu. As it is, once the input button on the TiVo remote is pressed, the television's input menu is displayed, but the TiVo's arrows and select functions have no effect on the input menu. I have to press the TiVo input button to cycle down (and only down) through the televison's input menu, until my desired input is highlighted, then wait a few seconds for the selection to be automagically accepted with no additional input from the TiVo remote.

    I understand what you want, and it's the same as what I said. I see no purpose to your reply.
