    So that's cool that Apple Remote on my iphone actually controls my AppleTV! No more looking for my lost little silver remote which I always loose cuz it's so small!!

    However... The Apple Remote seems to only play/pause in XBMC, it won't navigate through the menus... I wonder why?

    Hopefully XBMC will update this...

    Because the Apple Remote app wasn't written for XBMC, especially since it is a jailbreak app.

    There's an app called Rowmote that works for both ATV and XBMC. You have to install the plugin via NitoTV for it to work and pay $5 for the app, but it works great.

    It's also a universal app so it is native on both the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Additionally it will work as a remote for a Mac computer if you install the app for it.
