I.E. 4= receiver d-pad left 6= receiver d-pad right etc and the + button at the bottom left of the remote can be remapped to get into your receiver menu. Hope that works for you.
Ideally, the directional pad (e.g., up, down, left, right) would be able to control multiple devices within an activity.
For example, last night I was watching a movie (in my "watch a movie activity). In this activity, the directional pad controls the blu-ray player. I used it to navigate the blu-ray menu and start the movie.
Three minutes into the movie, I realized I need to change my sharp TV to the "movie" setting. While I could bring up the "menu" for the TV, I couldn't navigate the menu with the directional pad, because the directional pad was associated with the blu-ray player in that activity.
Changing the number pad over is a solution, but it would be nice if there were "universal" directional pad controls that would be applicable to ANY device menu displayed. (e.g., I could navigate ALL my device menus with the same control, so I could navigate whatever was on the screen).
