hi there . many thanks for the reply, I saw it yest but didn't have opportunity to reply. ok couple of things id like to address in your reply if I may.
I would rather not look elsewhere, I'm trying to offer my support and feedback as I am a long time user of crystalbuntu on apple 1, xbmc in general, and also own a vero with white remote. I am also considering buying a vero 2. my background is in industrial design (product design) and I work in a similar creative design field for the last 20 years. many remotes have passed thru my hands. Of all tv , av remotes etc I own, none click audibly other that the white apple remote, and the much more pleasant silver. In my experience, I think its fair to say that the majority of remotes in an av setting do not click audibly at least. None of my remotes have spongy buttons, and with all its very apparent that button has been pressed, and something also occurs with that press, to confirm the press has occurred and so on
in regards to the gui, if a skin has turned the sounds off, then the sounds can be switched back on. what I am saying there is that for those that require an actual noise, the gui can provide that, with a few choices of more pleasant sounds. Also, a user can see something is occurring with a button press by something happening on the gui, without sound. that's his/herconfirmation. if I were to use another medium as an example, a huge bugbear for most humans is people who leave their keypad tones on on their phone, especially in confined group situations.
so in summary, I feel its unusual to have a clicky av remote, certainly one that would be integrated with OSK,s and I feel your vero 2 would have greater success if the buttons could be quietened a bit more. repetitive audible clicks in any sitiation will eventually irk, a little like taps dripping.
I hope this clarifies my previous message and that it helps a little. best. P
