    what happened to the first 2?

    i like the way the remote works, but the physical design and layout are trash, hopefully they update it at some point.

    another option is the old style IR remote. It's a little more robust.
    or a universal remote that can imitate it.

    or if your TV has the right features, the TV remote will control the aTV over the HDMI cable.

    We have our cable remote set up to control the Apple TV via IR. That's what's used 99% of the time.

    I bought the Griffin protector mentioned elsewhere in this thread. I like it a lot. It does add some bulk to the remote but it fits well, does not interfere with the buttons or trackpad, and makes it much easier to use the remote without looking at it since the bottom (unused) section of the front of the remote is covered.

    The biggest negative for me - it's silicone so it's a bit squishy, which means that my dog might decide to chew it to pieces if I leave it where she can reach it.

    I just got one of the cheap ones from eBay a few days ago. There are a ton of sellers with the same thing varying from ~$2 up. I paid a little more to get one shipped from the US.

    I was underwhelmed when I opened it up as it was really thin and didn't fit very snugly on the remote. I haven't used it much yet to get a full opinion of it. We have a 2 year old, so I also wanted some protection. Although we have laminate floors, which will probably be a lot more forgiving to glass than tile. I figured a few bucks will be worth it if it saves that remote in a fall.

    Got the same one (elago R1 Intelli Case ) except mine is clear (I think they call it white).

    Mine is holding up great so far!

    I ordered a silicone case from Amazon, not as slippery , much easier to hang on to now.
