Any speculation out there that he :apple: TV remote might emulate the form factor of the Nano? Specifically, a click-wheel would be a substantial improvement for navigating (ff/rw/chapter search) movies. I can't figure out just yet how the current remote is going to be a sufficient substitute for a DVD players remote. Since simplification and functionality are keys to :apple: TVs success, I'm still scratching my head on the remote capabilities...thoughts???

I think that they showed that it was the same as the current apple remote, but I do think that a click wheel would be a good idea.

I do agree that a click wheel would be better, but this would, however, significantly increase its cost price...

I have a few dvd's that I backed up in H.264 files in iTunes, and it is a bitch FFWD through them in Front Row. Skipping to the middle in a 2+hour movie like Pirates of The Caribbean....:mad:
