Enter alphanumeric characters through NEEO... how?

My satellite box lets you to search for thing in the programme guide by typing in text.  The standard way this is done is using 'phone style' number key - letter associations (so for example, key 2 doubles up as 'abc', key 3 'def' etc.).  This system works well, and is my preferred way of finding things in the guide.

My Logitech Harmony handles this requirement flawlessly, but I am unable to work out how to get NEEO to do this.

Clearly without the ability to enter text into search boxes, NEEO is pretty useless for controlling the satellite box.

Grateful for any suggestions etc.

Thanks!

      Jeff I'd also like this for my stb! I'm using "sky drx890c" but this ought to be the same for all the sky drx89* devices. Are you thinking of a seperate alphabet widget, or enabling the existing numerical widget to show the letters on each key as well to better mimic what the existing physical remote looks like?

      Hi, I edited the name of the request to be more general. Hopefully it helps as I have lost hope on getting this ”change” done. I understand that there are million things people want and things needs to be priorized but c’mon how this can ever compete with other ideas which have hundreds of votes!? We are ”only” talking about showing static icon or picture under a number so we know how many times we need to press it. ;D This is no new feature or idea but it needs to be there as without it it’s really super annoying try to ”type”.
