magic remote

You can talk to the remote (TV) and scroll through the listings, it also acts as a mouse pointer for selecting items as you point the remote up/down, left/right. Worth having, but it does not handle the play/pause/FF/FR as well as the standard remote. You have to use the mouse pointer, point and click with the magic remote, rather than having dedicated buttons.

took me a while to get used to my magic remote, but now I am, I like it.
Although I have to use two remotes as I have Freesat, and not sure if the magic one will work Freesat?

I didn't realise this, thanks for mentioning it. I find the standard remote really tedious for typing text in. But I also use the play/pause buttons a lot. Can I speak those functions into the magic remote?
