It's shameful, but I still haven't managed to properly program my universal remote. Instead I visualize a chart like this and fumble around with three remotes controls just to watch a movie. [The Selby via Unplggd]

As a side note, can anyone explain the new "Red/Green/Yellow/Blue" buttons on new TV remotes? My new Philips is essentially identical to the pictured remote, and I noticed the PS3 BluRay options has the colors as well, but none of them seem to do anything. The red one on my TV remote takes me into a demo menu, but that's it.
