Does anyone make a JP1 remote which has a screen and 6, 8 or 10 buttons around the screen which would have labels (on the screen) which change based on the function of the button?

For years, I've used 8910 remotes at each tv. I have no trouble remembering what function is mapped to what button, but then again, I'm the one who programs them. My wife and and in-laws tend to forget what does what. I don't care whether the display is color, but it would be enormously helpful if at least some buttons could have a changing lcd label (with backlighting on demand) which indicates what the button does.

Any suggestions for a JP1 remote like this?

No JP1 remote I'm afraid, but the remote you are looking for is out there, it's called the MX-500.

Or the Logitech Harmony. I have to admit, pretty good WAF.
Dammit, I wish OFA would re-issue the 6131 (original) with backlighting. I'd buy about 5. What a perfect PVR remote except for the lack of backlighting.

Have you seen the Atlas OCAP 1056?

Pretty similar, with backlight... Plus you really can't beat that price. If we had an organized household, I would probably buy a Harmony, but JP1 lets me have 3 remotes in the living room, so there is always at least one we can find Smile

Yup. I have one of those in the bedroom. It's fine, but it is a little big. Harder for my wife to work one-handed.

You're right about the price, but I still have a fondness for the original 6131. If only it had a backlight, I never would have needed the harmony.

(edited for language - deleted the "H" word Wink). If you want small and backlit, check out the radio shack 15-133.
