    It would be helpful navigating the TiVo menus if I could use the number keys to select the menu items. This would save the up/down select cycle.

    Backdoor mode not required, listed here for completeness.

    TiVo 0 - Plays the TiVo guy boot movie

    TiVo 2 - Goes to the To Do list.

    TiVo 4 - Goes to the "Browse By Name" screen.
    TiVo 5 - Goes to the "Browse By Channel" screen in 1.3, and to "LiveTV" in 2.0. No, nobody knows why they changed it. They changed it back to "Browse by Channel" for 2.5 though.
    TiVo 6 - Goes to the "Browse By Time" screen.
    TiVo 7 - Goes to the "Record Time/Channel" screen (manual record).
    TiVo 8 - Goes to the "TiVo's Suggestions" screen.

    I believe the shortcuts are the same across the board.

    They dropped TiVo-0 for the series 2 DTiVos (and went back and removed it from all except the Sony series 1 DTiVos). :) But aside from that, I believe those shortcuts work on all models.
