I had assumed that a remote IVR device was required because I put a 
movie in and couldn't get the keyboard to select 'play'.  I guess I just 
need to figure out how to do that.

However for this case I think we want a remote.  It's going in the home 
gym so we can download spin videos and similiar while on the 
treadmill/bike.  Unless I create a treadmill keyboard 
holder........That's gonna cause an accident though :).

Ideally I'd like to be able to switch between watching stored movies, 
live cable tv, and internet movies (like those downloadable spin videos) 
all from one box.
