Remember, though, D-Nice suggested there might not be such a thing as an
elite vs. non-elite after this gen. Next year, we might only see elite-type TVs
with all the bells and whistles and the signature series for those who want a
monitor type (sorta reminiscent of what the elite was in the first place).
BTW, that 're-designed' remote posted by kkgsxr doesn't look like much of a
re-design at all. All they did was move the numberpad up, the directional pad
down and exposed the media/dvd buttons, for the most part. Sigh...
