Universal Remote Hack

I found that the most often used buttons on my universal remote (up, down, left, and right directional buttons) were the hardest to press. Every time I tried to use them, I would inadvertently rotate the dial surrounding them, causing the remote to switch functions (from controlling the media center extender to controlling the TV). I came up with a neat little idea to make it a little more usable. I stuck some of the clear rubber bumpers that you put between a piece of glass and a table top (among other uses) on each of the directional buttons, and another in the center (for the “ok”) button.
