How I’d redesign the Comcast remote
Alex Couch

You kept the input button, they removed it on the X1 remote. This alone makes your idea more useful, let alone some of the other ideas here. I’m still partial to the number-pad, even though removing it and providing on screen options isn’t that bad. One place that wouldn’t work is with parental controls though. If the kids can see the pin, then it wouldn’t work as intended for too long. Good ideas!
