    I don't understand why the top 2 buttons are menu and TV input. Since they are the closest to the touch area, it should be buttons most frequently used. It would be better if play/pause was next to menu, like in the previous Apple TV remote. It seems awkward to have the touch area and play/pause on opposite ends.

    The button with the tv on it is the home button.

    Seems unnecessary. Currently you just hold down the menu button for a second or two, and that takes you home.

    You also use the home button for quickly switching between apps (like in iOS), so a dedicated Button makes sense in my opinion.
