If you change 'm' while in the EPG then you need some other button to
signify "tune to this channel and go back to livetv". Currently that
is "m", which is nice.. But in limited-button remotes you need to use
the same button(s) to go into and out of a particular function. 'm'
enters EPG, then 'm' leaves EPG. Nice and balanced, and doesn't
require another button on the remote. If you're going to toggle to
another page using 'm', then at least add a "watch this channel" menu
option to the page that comes up when you hit 'enter'.
