This seems like a dandy remote, and I'm looking forward to Daniel's review. But looking at the pictures, I can't help but think I'd like it even better if it didn't have the numeric keypad on the bottom. I'm using a Pronto now and I literally can't remember the last time I switched to the numeric-pad screen on any of my devices. The TheaterTouch would be closer to my ideal remote if it had a smaller form factor, maybe with one more row of distinctly-shaped buttons for play/pause/ff/rew and no numeric keys at all.

Am I in the minority here? Do other folks type digits at their equipment often?

I realize I can program the number keys to send whatever command I like, but that's not very easy to use (my guests would have no way of knowing that the "3" button switches surround modes, for instance).
