It takes a bit of getting used to but works fine without needing full line of sight.
The box has to be switched on manually, unless its recording, about to be recording. in active standby or has only been switched to standby in the last few minutes.
Additionally to what it states there the 'I' key is also an 'Info' key.
On the plus side it is easier to enter searches, plus the F4 key takes you directly to the recording list.
It's not immediately obvious from the youview keyboard mapping PDFs is that the 'Del' key has been mapped to the back function, and the 'Back' key to the delete function.
