Only issue is there’s no home button so won’t be able to bring up the control panel.
Unless of course the power button provides that functionality.

Or use any iDevice you have that’s on a recent OS (if you have one)
or your TV/media center remote.. though you’d need something to control the Apple TV first to get to the menu where you program it but yeah lol

As far as I can tell only the Apple (Siri) Remote gives you the ability to use Siri with an ATV (for what that is worth!). I am finding the trackpad tedious since, currently, tvOS only allows me to go up, down, left or right and so arrow keys would suffice. The lack of a mute button is also irritating.

Was wondering if my wife and I are the only ones that do this. I even have it on my iPad.
