I'm looking for the remote to feel good in my hand, so that I have a sense for where certain buttons are such as skip forward, skip back, previous channel, select, etc. The remote control we had back when we had Dish Network had this kind of feel to it. The remote that came with my Vizio TV does not. I would love for the remote to have a slide out keyboard like the one that came with my Vizio TV, but not if that makes the price of the remote ridiculous. If its not too much trouble, could you provide me with recommendations for remotes both with and without keyboards if keyboards significantly increase the price.
One final note, my HTPC doesn't have Bluetooth built into it, so I'm going to need to add that capability if the remote doesn't come with the necessary receiver.
