I've seen backlit remotes here in the Uk. But they were those 'any
type of machine' ones that likely take a month to set up and never
really work. Nonetheless they were backlit!
No idea on the favorites, but I did hear about a company making an
iPod app that could control a tv. Apple asked them to take it off the
market, might have been Belkin or Griffin.
