As far as remotes I’ve had in my lifetime go, the layout of my DirecTV remote is alright. But the colored context-dependent buttons drive me insane, especially the red one. On sports channels like ESPN, it opens up a menu with scores (tons of issues here too but we won’t go into that). On non-sports channels, the red button does nothing. So whenever I’m watching, say, NBA games on TNT or ABC, I always hit the button and get confused why it’s doing nothing. My mental model is “sports” rather than “sports channels.” But why doesn’t the red button just open up the scores on every channel, for that matter? I really HATE modal errors in general, and this is no exception.
