    I never use the thumbs up/down but they are so annoying being placed right in your way. I came up with a solution (that I like, at least). Get a sharp rasor blade and carefully slice those un used and un needed buttons to the remotes surface. Thats assuming your buttons are the soft rubber type. Then, no more annoying buttons in the way, but the buttons are still there and function. They just dont stick up, in your way. :up:

    If those buttons bother you that much, why not just grab a $15 remote with PVR capability from Wal-Mart?

    I really don't need a few of my toes, either. Should I slice those off, too? :D

    I have never hit a thumb button in error. Not once. Ever. (And I do use the thumbs buttons. I like suggestions.)

    Now if someone could tell me how to move the TV power button to where the Window button is, I would be happy. (And don't tell me to use a remote from a standalone TiVo - they put the stupid Window button where the List button goes.)

    randym's remote has clearly offended the Yakuza, and they've taken appropriate measures.
