    Haven't updated APPLE TV yet, but I'm wondering from anyone who has if the dictation is working well? Been really wanting this.

    I did some experimenting in the YouTube app and the Siri dictation worked fairly well, faster than I expected. But I was in a silent room and knew what I wanted to say for a search before hand. Haven't tried any other apps but I expect they would be the same. Hopefully it'll work well for you. BTW, I also hooked up a generic Bluetooth keyboard and that worked well too.

    It did not work so well when I tried it this morning. I'm sure they will be improving it along the way though. Inputting my password worked fine, but when I tried to input my IP address it was almost comical.

    When I tried to input 192.168 as I would say each character it would type out the numbers fine, but then as I would say "point" it would type out 192point. So I tried saying "dot" instead and it printed 192pointdot. Then I tried to go back a back space and it printed 192pointdotbackspace. I then tried using the word 'delete' and it printed 192pointdotbackspacedelete :D

    In the end I typed it in manually...

    Working remarkably well for me -- I didn't realize it would work so well with passwords, getting all the capital, lowercase stuff as well as special characters. Just as accurate with words when in a text field. Great update :)
