I'll once again praise the URC MX-500
(<URL:http://www.remotecentral.com/mx500/index.html>), its radio
counterpart MX-600, and their higher-end cousins. Their hard buttons
match perfectly with key MythTV functions and one easily programs the
soft buttons for the rest.
(Were I starting over I'd probably get the MX-650 or MX-850, as their
button layout avoids all overlaps and thus is preferable, but only
marginally. I like having a discrete Stop button, anyway.)

Two remotes with keyboards exist:
Logitech diNovo Mini (really more of a remote-sized keyboard):
The list has briefly discused both.
I'd love to see someone else adopt the built-in keybaord idea in
another, radio-based remote design. Meanwhile, I keep an infrared
keyboard under my living room sofa.
