    Alright. Long story short: I left my remote at a relatives house a while ago, and since then have simply been using my iPad and iPhone to control my ATV2. A long while ago I had jailbroken my ATV for XBMC functionality, but with Airplay expansion this became less of a concern and I decided to restore it so I could utilize iCloud functions.

    The problem is, I completely forgot that the Remote app needs a Wifi connection. So now I'm stuck at the setup screen on my ATV. Is there any way I can get it set up without the remote or am I stuck without it until I can get a new one?
