Add a setting to assign the various TIVO+DIGIT functions to a menu item of the user's choosing, with the current ones as default.
I thought of this while navigating to the new Netflix Watch Instantly option, which currently takes eight remote button presses ("TIVO, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, SELECT, DOWN, RIGHT, SELECT"). It'd be so nice if I could do this with a TIVO+DIGIT combo (ever so much nicer than having a TIVO+DIGIT combo for running the start-up animation
). Since the "Video on Demand" menu appears to itself be an HME app, maybe this couldn't provide direct access to the Netflix WI menu, but it could cut down the button presses to "TIVO, DIGIT, DOWN, RIGHT, SELECT". Access to other functions in the actual TiVo GUI which I use more commonly than "Browse By Channel", "Browse By Time", "Set Manual Recording", "TiVo Suggestions" and "Showcases" (only one of which I ever--rarely--use) could be greatly speeded up.
