    Goddammit that pisses me of!

    Is there any way around it?

    I mean, searching for stuff with it is next to impossible!

    Type,for example Portishead. 0 hits.
    But if you search portis then you get few,then find a portsihead video and under that you can find loads and loads of vids.
    Same with ALL the other stuff that requires more than,say 6 letters..
    And the via the search you can only find handfull of stuff that is aviable in youtube.

    What gives?

    The searching sucks for everything. You really should be able to hook a keyboard or even a laptop to sync and type. Typing with the remote is a bitch and a half. I hate it.

    I agree, they should let the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard compatible with Apple TV. Kinda of like the PS3 having the $80 logitech bluetooth keyboard.

    my workaround is to save favorites from the poc and use them to search on the ATV. By search, I mean the "people who viewed this also viewed ..." thing.
