Never owned a Tivo, but I can't say enough about my Harmony 676.  Has 
the "peanut" shape, well-placed buttons (plus a "glow" button that makes 
the buttons, well, glow), LCD panel, etc.  Best of all, it controls my 
entire HT system, including Xbox, CD Jukebox (now mostly a CD holder, 
since MythMusic has upstaged it), Receiver, and of course Myth.  Usually 
with one or two button presses.  It also powers everything up/down 

So it can be done. Oh, and my wife and kids would rather give up ice 
cream than the remote.
