    All buttons including those under the slider (keyboard) have backlighting.

    There is a light sensor so the backlight is only on when needed.

    Is there any way to get the light to go on without first pressing a (random) button? On my harmony, I just have to shake it...Other remotes have a button on the side to turn on the backlight... I've found that I can force the light on by sliding out the keyboard, but that seems like too much trouble.

    This probably won't be an issue as soon as my hand memorizes the remote, but until then...

    I have a Harmony as well and it has a motion sensor and will light up as you describe.

    I have never seen this feature on any of the backlighted remotes I have had over the years - Bluetooth slider, RF slider pro, and Glo remotes.

    All need a button press to make them light up.

    Does anyone else see the humor in this? :confused:

    Except the thumbs up, thumbs down, and A/B/C/D buttons. Those buttons are opaque (do not transmit the backlight).
    Sliding it open seems to trigger the light to come on.

    I have three Premieres in the house. I bought one Slide remote with dongle. If I buy two more dongles, can I use the Slide on all three Tivos, or do I have to re sink the remote with each Tivo every time?
