To cater for the few buttons, there is a new "OSD Navigation" action 
that you can assign to the enter button. There is a "long press" 
capability so that you can assign menu action to a long press of enter. 
There is a new way of selecting recording groups from the playback list. 
All important remote functions can be controlled by making appropriate 
settings in the keyboard assignments.

You can plug in a USB remote that emulates a keyboard, or a keyboard.

Also you can use the TV remote if the TV supports CEC. I believe most 
TVs support CEC. You may need to use the keyboard assignment settings to 
assign keys as needed.
