some thoughts
touchscreens look cool but.... if you need to use the remote lots they are insanely annoying, here is the scenario

for dvr usage you need to actively use the 'skip forward / backward' feature (or watch commericals)

changing channels
while watching live tv a person tends to channel surf

when you have those controls via touchscreen you need to visually look at the remote before using the feature, that is annoying and gets to be a pain in the tail

because of these scenarios i've traditioned our remotes away from ones like the sony commander and the harmony one towards the harmony 880
currently we have both the harmony one and the 880, the 880 is leading the preference pack due to the dvr button being tactial vs. touch
