I guess it depends on the point of view.

It is right not all remotes provide the same key order, but the master plan since over 10 years is "RGYB". So if a individual doesn't want to use a remote following VDR's standard, should find a way around by themself, at least from my point of view. But hence, functionality of the color buttons remains still the same, even ist "YBRG" or what ever, pretty sure users get used to it after a while ...

Outside OSD the color buttons can be defined freely, but inside they is kind of fixed definitons fixed for these keys by source code. Maybe the target is to get a possibilty to change these now somewhat fixed mapping, that each individual can define ther what it want to have. Even the order, to match the order on the "non-VDR" remote ...

And yes, I remember 1 or 2 questions in vdr-portal regarding this ... ;-)
