I'm very excited that the new Apple TV will control Volume and TV input as this has been one of my biggest gripes with the existing unit. My understanding is that the ATV will turn on a TV and set it to the correct input via the HDMI-CEC protocol. I assume (and hope) that it will control the volume with the IR transmitter on the remote so that it can change volume on a TV or Receiver/Amp. Now I'm also assuming that the reason the ATV unit itself has a IR receiver is so that it can learn the IR signal (for volume UP and DOWN) from my original Receiver/amp/TV remote. Once it has learned them it tells the Apple TV remote what IR signals to emit when the volume buttons are pressed. Now, the remote doesn't have many other buttons to control other aspects of my receiver/amp. Perhaps this is wishful thinking, though I see no reason this couldn't be easily implemented, could the above be used in conjunction with Siri to control all the other functions of my original remotes? For example if I can teach all or some of the other buttons on my original remote to the new ATV it would be awesome if I could say "Siri switch receiver to blueray input" or "Siri open the TV menu" etc. and then have the appropriate IR signal blasted from the ATV remote. Thoughts?
