The Runco remote control is a pretty good one. The backlight is nice and bright, but not so bright as to be blinding. The color of the backlight is mostly redish, though it looks too orangish in the picture.
The remote starts off at the top with separate Power On and Power Off buttons. A single press of the Off button is all it takes to shut it down, unlike most home theater projectors which require two presses to turn off (good for preventing accidental shut down).
There are five programmable Source buttons. The defaults for 1 and 2 are HDMI 1 and 2, so that's as far as I needed to go. You can reconfigure them as desired.
Next comes the navigation systems with the four arrow keys in a round configuration, and with a center Enter button.
The Menu button is below to the left and it also is used when navigating to take you back up a menu level.
Next come three User Memories for your and your ISF certified calibrator's use.
There are a number of direct buttons, for: Sharpness, Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Overscan, and Noise reduction.
Finally, on the bottom row is the button for Picture In Picture, and the Swap button to reverse which image is which. Finally, in the bottom right is the backlight button. Press it, (or any key) and the backlight will come on for 10 seconds. Pressing the Light button when the backlight is already on, turns it off. (Nice touch!)
