    Using MBP's key board on ATV?
    I'm a couple of days into having ATV and love it. Typing with the ATV remote is A PITA. I have ATV hooked into a wireless home network with my MBP. Is there any way to use the key board on the MBP for the ATV?

    I feel your pain. They seriously need to make their wireless keyboard and trackpad compatible with the ATV.

    Sure would be nice! But if you think of it I already have a keyboard and track pad which is connected to my MBP and is wireless. Still looks like to me if Ipads can talk with ATV's MBP's should be able to also. Oh well back to the keyboard or in this case the small remote.
