Most of you know that the Apple TV can be programmed to learn remote control codes. What remote do you like using with yours? I went with a TiVo remote myself. I got a DirectTV one, but you can find countless other variants on Amazon and eBay for $15 or so new. They have a good hand feel, and it's easy to learn the buttons by touch without having to look at the remote. These have the added benefit that they can be programmed to cover most TVs and stereo systems as well (at least for power, volume, input select and mute). For programming, I use: Menu/Back: TiVo button Up/Down/Left/Right: Up/Down/Left/Right Select: Select Play: play Pause: Pause Stop: Stop Fast back: Fast back Fast right: Fast right Skip back: Rewind 10 sec Skip forward: Skip forward 30 sec Chapter forward/back: Channel up/down These are all nicely clustered around the select and pause buttons so I can rapidly find them by feel. I never have to look at the remote. There are various guides online that list all the remote codes for programming the TV and optional stereo system parts.
