Anyone have a list of commands? So far after getting it today, I've noticed I can search for pretty much anything, tell it "tune"/"go to" a channel name or number, say "Channel up" or down...

Anyone else have anything helpful to add to the list? It'd be nice to have a wiki page of useful tips/tricks with this remote.

Good idea. Maybe you could make a list of the commands in pdf form. Scott might make a Sticky tread so it could be shared by everyone.
