I thought the active button was for interactive programming. Why did they put an active button on the remote of it's not capable of being interactive? :confused:

The remote may look the same but it is not. The remote for the H-10 is an RF remote and also has a format button that the other does not.
So why the active button then? It says "for future use" in the manual. All H10 remotes have this button?

Yes all H-10 remotes have this button. I don't think anyone really knows for sure if they will ever go interactive with it. I think it was the D-10 just received an update for this feature a couple of months ago. If you look at the manual for the H-10 and see the remote features it says for future use. Only GOD and D know for sure what that means. lol :D

Do you think it's possible the H10 could be made interactive with the new upgrades? How great would that be? I was really bemoaning the fact that I wouldn't be able to enjoy all of the features of SuperFan-- seems very silly to package HD with features (i.e., interactive features) that no existing HD receiver can access.

You will find the following info and a picture of the specified remote.
I bought one and it is identical in appearance and function to the one that came with my H10.
