    Question What are those colored buttons for?

    This is a question for everyone whose has a 20.0/21.0 remote. Does anyone know what those four colored buttons located above the DVR button are for? I read the user manual on DISH's website and it said they're shortcut buttons for future use, but can someone here at Satguys give me a better explanation. I know the 32.0 remote has those same buttons and the red one is for "jump" (don't know what that means) but do the 20/21.0 remotes do the same "jump" thing as well? Any info would be appreciated.

    As far as I can tell on my 722K the colored buttons are currently useless. Maybe if you program the 20.0/21.0/32.0 remote to control a DVD player that uses the colored buttons they would work on that device. The 32.0 on the 922 uses all 4 colored buttons, depending on which screen you are on. The problem with the 922 is the color button codes that Logitech has/had for the 32.0 didn't/don't work correctly on a 922. I haven't tried my Harmony remote in several months so that may have been corrected.

    I use the colored buttons for other devices. For my receiver I them to change inputs. For my projector with distinct on/off keys I use one of them for the off.

    I love the colored buttons. I have them programmed to perform tasks on my AV receiver that don't work with the standard code for the receiver.
