I would like to know opinions or prior experiences on the issue of
handling 'text entry on screen' for UI's which are controlled by a
remote (a remote with keypad).
Do your users prefer a particular approach over other?
Is there a best (or a good) remote keypad layout for text entry?
How do you deal with this issue when the keypad has only numbers and arrow keys?
How does it change when you have a ball or a scroll pad on remote?
I understand that this is a very broad question because a lot can
change based on layout of the remote, controls on the remote like
scrolls, cursors, ball etc.
Still I wanted to get a feeling of different kinds of issues you have
come across for any type of remote based text entry.
