Nintendo TVii tops button-riddled remotes

Nintendo’s TV-watching tool for the new Wii U game console beats a regular remote control (Nintendo TVii, Wii U)

tvii is a great service that will only get better as nintendo improves it..

I'm looking forward to the launch of the full service in the UK. In the meantime I'd like to see some improvements to the way it handles IR remotes. I (like many others) have a home cinema system and therefore the TV volume buttons do nothing... An option to customise the buttons is needed, preferably directly programmable from other remotes because I *think* the Gamepad has an IR transceiver, not just a transmitter.

I hope they fix that. I hope they don't just do Tivo that would suck. I don't have nor will I ever get Tivo. It is a rip off. My ATT DVR does just as much as the newer Tivo's and for 5 bucks a month instead of Tivo's $20 (thats how much Tivo cost monthly last time I checked).

Dude! that's a rip-off. I spend 25 a month for basic dish and a dvr with 500 gigs.

I spent $160 dollars on a smart remote (it was really cool) like 8 years ago. TVii is way better. Look at the stores for a remote that does even half of this and see what you get and how much it cost. This is a very cool feature. Oh and my PS3 can not do any of this.
