Ha! Yeah, we've had those discussions. I made a little Rosetta Stone for her to decode everything.

My setup is actually pretty complex, but she generally just watches TV, TV through the ReplayTV, or she doesn't have to worry about getting the XBox or PS2 onscreen.

I really need to redo my macros. The big problem is that most components are not state aware, so if the controller sends a "power" signal, it will just switch to whatever state it wasn't in. Thus, if my TV is already on and my "watch DVD" macro is pressed, it turns the TV off. Pain, but no real way around that.
