Poor design of voice remote with X1 features

In addition to the voice remote being too heavy for a remote of that size.  I frequently use pause of Live TV.  I was watching a program.  I paused because I had to make a phone call at a certain time.  To save time when I went back to finish watching my show, I fast forwarded through commercials.  The fast forward and rewind controls should not have been put right next to the channel button.  My fat finger hit the bottom of the channel button while trying to fast forward.  Once the channel got changed I could't go back to the program I was watching, at least to the time that I wanted to go back to.  I did set to record the program as a backup.  Now I have to wait until the show is over before I get to go back and watch the rest of my program. The fast forward and rewind controls should not have been put right next to the channel button, since the channel button cancels the paused program.

you can watch a recording while at home and rewind it wihtout waiting for it to finish (using your set top box).
