    I use my AppleTV a lot when hosting outdoor parties and have it rigged up to outdoor speakers.

    I would love a microphone function on the apple remote app so I can talk through the iPhone and have my voice streamed to the AppleTV so that it comes out over my speakers.

    Kinda like a wireless microphone.

    What are the chances?

    Very very unlikely^^I mean its cool and all maybe even useful but hows it fit into the ATV?

    what would be cool is voice controll through the iPhone

    It would just fade the volume of the music currently playing on the AppleTV while someone speaks over it either by holding a button on the iPhone app or using automatic ducking. I think it would be a really neat feature.

    "Burgers Ready"
    "Can I have you attention for a minute"

    Just think of all the announcements you could make. :cool:

    Problem is there would be some lag. It'd be a bit disconcerting if you could hear the output of the main speakers.
