You've used them differently, I see; only the naming is incompatible, AFAICT.
"Previous" and "Next" does seem more appropriate.

Not a problem, but it's a distinct VDR function a^\nd, since there's a key
for it on some (common?) remote controls, I think that it deserves a VDR key
code for itself.
The * and # keys don't, though; their placement on that remote control makes
them suitable for use as duplicate OK and Back buttons.
(I see that that remote control is described as "ergonomic". R808 - the older
grey/black one - has a better layout...)
