    Is there an app for the iphone or an actual remote that lets you control the Tivo app running on the iPad? I realize you can do so by touching the iPad itself but would like to control it from a distance like with a traditional remote.

    Thanks for any help.

    that doesnt even make sense.

    how about a stylus duck-taped to a yardstick?

    iOS devices support some Wired and most Bluetooth Wireless keyboards.

    I did not find any keyboard bindings in my version of Tivo.app (v3.1.1), but I could have missed something.

    Newer versions could add keyboard support if Tivo wanted.

    If the Tivo app works on the ipad, why would it not work in the iPhone?

    The TIVO app does work on the iPhone but it will not control the TIVO app on the iPad as far as I can tell. What would be useful to me would be the ability to use the remote within the TIVO iPhone app to control the TIVO iPad app--say for the 30 second skip function.
