    another option is to chop off the buttons, hide the circuit board for the buttons, and extend the wires for the IR sensor and use the lilliput remote

    The little recess above the buttons is where I normally trim Lillis off. Then when you move the button board around back there is nothing else within the housing that would hang below that cut off area.

    I don't have any pics, but with the exception being the buttons, the circuit boards within the Lilli are no larger than the screen. If you look inside the front you can see the tabs that locate and center the LCD along with the 4 screw posts for the tabs that hold it in. As you long as you don't cut these all off all is well. I believe you may lose the lower tabs if you cut on that recess but if you need the maximum height reduction its no big deal. Just secure it so it can't fall.
