New Update & Bluetooth keyboard

Keep in mind that now that you can use your Apple keyboard or any bluetooth keyboard to control your Apple TV that the keyboard can only be paired to only one device at a time.

Or way simpler, the remote.app on any other iDevice (not new). Yay!

Except the latest update hosed up the ability for the iPad remote.app to connect reliably to the ATV. It was flawless for me before the update. Frustrating. How does one report a bug for the ATV?

I have not experienced that personally, but there seems to be some issues.

Remote app update fixed everything for me so far. Still ticks me off they broke stuff, but glad it's fixed now. I'm really tempted to keep a clean ATV and never update. I SO love this with homesharing when it's fully functioning. Finest jukebox ever.

Unless you're using Logitech's solar BT keyboard. That can pair to three different devices at once. I imagine there are other keyboards out there with a similar capability.
