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.
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?
