A while back my MX-500 had some problems with sticky, non-working buttons, so I sent it in and they replaced it with a new model, even though it was out of warranty (nice!).

Knowing I would be without my remote for over a week I bought a 2116 and programmed it via jp1 to do 90% of what the MX-500 did. We now use both the MX-500 and the 2116 interchangeably in the HT room, but are mildly frustrated that the Menu/Guide/Info/Exit buttons are in different physical locations on the 2116. We like the MX-500 layout better. Yes, we could re-program the functions on the 2116 to match the layout on the MX-500 for consistency, but the labels would not match.

Is it possible to open up the 2116 and physically reposition the buttons so that the button layouts match that of the MX-500? I haven't tried to open this up, and don't want to if this is not a workable solution. Thanks!
