AppleTV remote is THE product I truly hate: • Can't know which way you're holding it • Dog jumping on lap triggers movie pause or worse • Dust cleaning turns on AppleTV, amp, TV • Falling remote goes back to menu; etc Going for a Logitech Harmony to replace this abomination

Yes I want old-style remote control with hard buttons. No I don't care about trackpad-style surface or SIRI support. I need a remote control that works and doesn't get in my way. AppleTV remote is a fashion victim. I don't understand Apple never upgraded this terrible design.

Have you already got it or just planning it ? I am curious to see real life usage reports on it. I dislike Apple’s remote too but wife hates it strongly. So alternatives could help. Isn’t the harmony full of useless buttons ?

I just ordered one. Have heard good things about it. Pricey but I have a bunch of remotes here I want to replace with a single one and the harmony seems to fit the bill.

And you can't even use it reliably as a presentation remote on a Mac 😔

Didn't even try. This thing pisses me off every time I use it. Every. Single. Time.

The remote app is available as an alternative. Apple TV Remote by Apple

I don't want a smartphone app. I want a real, physical remote control with buttons.

And it's terrible for games, dooming the game market on Apple TV at launch.

Ay, that's true, preventing me more or less to write apps for it (received a free apple tv few years ago from app as a respected developer😐😎) Apple TV appstore app is horrible, it should be more like Steam's, listing all apps if desired.
