What about filling in the programs that are there and then just putting 
"unknown" everywhere else?

Most devices use the numbers to let you "zoom" to that number.. i.e., 
hitting "501" would take you to 501.. I think that makes way more sense 
for the numbers than using them as page up page down.. Any satellite 
receiver remote has up, down, left, and right.. in my remote setup, which 
I find pretty handy, these cause next-item scrolls, while hitting channel 
up or channel down cause next-page scrolls.. Anyway, I think this fish has 
been friend many times before by companies making all sorts of digital
