    As you have seen some apps now you can control a tv and use it as a remote I think sky should make something so you can use it as a remote instead of the sky remote.

    What do you all think.

    That look awesome, but there's no indication how it will work

    For a tv remote to work in real time I needs to be infrared, meaning the iPad needs a plug in bit of hardware. If it's only wifi operated then there'll be an inevitable delay in operations.
