This is why I so like my MX-500. Unlike the usual inexpensive
third-party remote with a thousand tiny little buttons with
even-tinier multiple sets of labels per button, only a few of the
(enormous) buttons have secondary labels, and within MythTV every
button does exactly what its primary label (whether preprinted or
user-edited) says it does. I've also overloaded as many functions that
logically correspond as possible; see
