    I just connected my Apple TV to my home theater and I'm wondering if its possible to play iTunes radio via Apple TV and control it with my iPad/iPhone without having to see the TV screen.

    I know I can control iTunes radio from my iDevices if I am looking at the Apple TV menu, but is there a way to do it without having to look at the TV and just from the iPad/iPhone itself?

    Thanks

    No, there isn't. You'll need to browse to Internet Radio on your TV first.

    You can control your iTunes library on your computer, including radio stations, with the Remote app. Then use Airplay to send it to your Apple TV.

    There is a way to control iTunes radio stations from Apple TV

    If you make a play list of any of the iTunes radio stations you want to listen to, that playlist will appear on your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad in the remote app. Its a work around, but it works.

    I was just coming back to say that. Got an Express today and noticed 'Radio' as one of the options on Remote.
