Just out of curiosity, what keys do you have on a remote that would bind 
to these?  My issue has always been that I don't have any keys to bind 
to a left/right cycling of groups (which is why I had thought maybe a 
single button cycle would work but then I don't have alot of groups so I 
can understand the undesirabilty of having to wade through lots of them).

I'd be nice if there was a UI element on screen I could navigate to 
where the left/right keys switch to cycling the groups and maybe even 
offering SELECT as a key to drop down a full list to up/down navigate 
through.  Unfortunately, I'm not up to speed on the GUI coding of 
something like that yet to try it myself.
