Feature Request: What we want in the new pro remote - Please add your thoughts.....

I have a few requests for the pro remote you are developing.   The number one is IR!!  I need to control my AVR system without holding two remotes.  This to me should be table stakes for an Ultra or pro remote.

I also want backlight.  

I don't care if it is rechargeable, replacing batteries is easy and not done often so I am not sure why that is the focus.

The Ultra remote already has IR.  They just chose not to allow us to use it with AV receivers, which is CRAZY.

Agree with the backlight suggestion.  I would add that they should create a keyboard remote, like TiVo has...

My 2019 ultra controlls my av receiver.  I found the secret menu.

Thank you for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, none of the AVR codes offered work with my Pioneer Elite SC-91 Smiley Sad  I even tried all the different regions.  Also tried it all again after an OTA update.  Very disappointing.  Especially since Pioneer is a major brand and they don't even have that many code sets.
