Hmmm. I don't have a button like that - my Philips remote is a lot newer (2008 model). In fact, I don't even see those in any stores around here anymore. Haven't for a long, long time.
I tried one of those cheaper ones like that that they had out for a few years up until about the last year, and I returned it, because it wouldn't hold the manual button programming. The buttons were too small and sticky, and the remote was just too flimsy in general. It was one of the cheapest remotes I've ever tried. It's no wonder they dropped down to only a couple of measly bucks when they were clearing them out around here. I have nothing against inexpensive remotes - I even have an inexpensive, all-silver RCA - but that thing was the downright crappiest (aftermarket) remote I've ever used. I had the 8-device DVR model when it first came out - they had a lot of nerve charging $20.00-$25.00 for that thing.
