I don't think that's a good idea, because round buttons look more like a
bang button; square buttons as in h/vradio are closer in concept already;
but my proposal is to make them look like toggles. Think of it, if you
were making that thing as an abstraction, you might be using toggle to
construct it, and then shift bits in the resulting values so that together
the toggles form a bitmap.
