If and when new hardware comes out a revamped remote I’m sure will follow. To be honest losing the input made the remote a major downgrade. I use the original slimline on all my 4K receivers.
@ahussynec Thanks for your idea submission. We've shared this with our product team, and they are in a continuous process of working towards the next evolution of our remote, and will take your idea into consideration. As it is on ongoing initiative, we won't be tracking this idea. When we have news, we'll make an annoucement in our blog! Thanks again.
