Thanks, Rustyben! I have been using the Exit key to get rid of it, but if you're late by a second the Exit key returns to its exit function mode and exits whatever show you are watching.
Now that I'm more experienced using the remote I'd propose redesigning it to make it a little more user friendly:
1) Switch the positions of the third and fourth row of keys from the top of the remote down.
The back-play-forward keys are used more often than the exit-microphone-record keys
and therefore should be in the more accessible position.
As it is, it's too easy to hit the exit, mike or record keys by mistake,
especially since the keys are so small and the rows close together.
2) A more versatile slo-mo with multiple incremental slow speeds and single frame advance would be sweet.
Had that on DISH and miss it.
3) A 15 or 20 second jump forward would be more useful than the current jump backwards feature,
for example making it possible to jump from the end of one football play to the start of the next play,
skipping the delay while the players get in position. DISH had this feature and I used it a lot.
I find when I rewind I'd rather use the regular rewind function.
I love the regular X1 fast forward though, it's nice that you can zoom forward until you see
the shot you want, but the system starts play at the head of that shot, not at the point you
zoomed to, so you don't have to be frame precise to get all the action.
Other than that it's nicely designed with lots of great features.
