On screen control Windows 7 media center

This is a little embarrassing, but I can't seem to find out what some of the on screen control are doing when watching live TV. That is, the small coloured button on the left hand side of the screen, to the left of the Text TV button. Also, the two button to the left of the coloured button, I am grateful for any advice. My TV works just fine by the way, jsut that I like to know what option there is to use.
