This is what I want for my Apple TV, or Fire TV, or ChromeCast, or Roku, or whatever the next best ‘puck’ is going to be called. And I don’t need a remote that can accept my speech or has a full keyboard for typing. What I want is a remote that can turn my TV on and off and can control the volume.

Is this that hard? Can it be done? Seems like a simple problem to solve, doesn’t it?

But the results of this ‘innovation’ would be tremendous. This would kill all other remote one needs to work the TV and make the ‘puck’ truly the main event in the living room.
