Don't like the TVO remote control

Just got Virgin broadband & a two TV box deal with Virgin.
The TVO remote controller is a disgusting design.
Important buttons like the back button is a tiny button on the left, right next to other tiny buttons!
The remote is narrow & slippery & feels cheap. You have to reach with your thumb to the main buttons near the top so it nearly slides out of your hand. Utterly vile,. I can't believe that something that should be so simple to get right & is so important to get right could be so wrong!
I'll never criticise my Sky remote again!
I'm dismayed that Sky News & BBC 24 news aren't HD with Virgin.
I can't get a gadget for the TVO box like I have for my Sky box to control it by remote from another room. There's no RF out socket on the TVO box to send TV from the living room to the kitchen as I often walk from the living room to the kitchen whilst watching a programme, whilst my wife watches something else upstairs on the other Virgin box. So I have to pay another £6.50 a month for a 3rd Virgin box to watch TV in the kitchen!
The 2nd box has very basic menus compared to a Sky box.
The installation guys got me to sign for the installation. Didn't realised they'd ticked the boxes that said they'd explained everything to me, when they hadn't !
Well at least the Virgin broadband is faster than O2 was.
But I'm going back to Sky for TV. To hell with the useless TVO remote control & no feed from the TVO to a second room or remote control from a 2nd room !
