Physical remote controls Airplay

Whenever I used AirPlay to watch something on my appleTV I've always assumed that I had to use the controls imbedded in the video player of the iOS device. Well, today I was watching HBOGO via AirPlay and I forgot that I was using airplay and used the silver apple remote and it worked. Don't know why I didn't think to try it before - just didn't think airplay had 2-way communication like that.

Makes using airplay so much easier.
