Default Stupid question about the S300

I can't find it in the manual (unless I missed it), but what exactly do the Red, Green, Blue and Yellow buttons on the remote do?

They add color to the remote so it's not as boring.

The multi-colored buttons are reserved for special interactive functions on discs that may be encoded with those features. HD DVD has the same, but theirs are labelled A, B, C, and D.

Off the top of my head, I don't know of any Blu-rays using those buttons yet. HD DVD uses its for a zoom function on some discs, and (on Studio Canal imports) subtitle resizing and positioning.

That's a pretty good "stupid" question if you ask me. I've always wondered the same but payed no attention.
