A few weeks ago when I got home from out of town, I could not find the remote to my TiVo. On the third day, I ran to Best Buy to acquire a universal remote replacement.
The replacement lacked critical usability features. Several buttons were simply missing:
- Select button to navigate the menus.
- Guide button to see what is worth watching.
- Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down to rate items.
I found the TiVo remote eventually. All is well again in the world.
