We've signed up for optik but because of arthritic fingers find the slimline remote far too thin and impossible to see the buttons in the dark. I just talked to an online chat person and she told me they are discontinued? I don't know if telus has boxes of them stored somewhere but it would be nice to have a choice and not have to run out and buy a remote.
The new remote (right) has larger buttons and is actually thicker than the old remote (left). To my knowledge, remotes older than these two do not work with the current PVR units. Neither is backlit.

Since AT&T U-Verse uses some of the same STB's as Optik TV, I wonder if their remote controls would work with Optik TV. They have even larger buttons than the Slimline 2 remotes and they're backlit. Hmmmm. I think I'll buy one on eBay and try it out. If it works I'll report back here.
