So my set up is 2 apple tvs. One in the living room and one in the bedroom.

I run XBMC off my iMac in my office and airplay content to the apple tvs.

My question is do you guys leave your airplay running all the time or do you know of a good companion remote to control easier with a keyboard and maybe a mouse pad attached all in one?

It's kind of annoying getting up, turning on airplay, bringing the keyboard and mouse into the living room or bedroom and running it that way.

Any good combo remotes or a better setup possibly?

Thanks for any feedback.

Should have prefaced I have a Note 3, not an iPhone but those are some great suggestions.

I was looking more for a keyboard/trackpad/remote all in one type of deal.
