can I buy a replacement remote?
my daughter lost our original remote and is grounded until it is found. 2 weeks have gone by, and now she just wants to replace it. Can one be bought?

Yes, the remote is available at the Apple online store and in Apple's retail stores. It's not a special-order item or anything like that; you'll find it on the Apple store shelves. You're not the first to lose the remote or have it chewed up by the family dog.

You don't need to buy a new remote. Simply download the remote app onto your iPhone or iPad and use it as the remote. It's even better than the one that comes with apple tv because you can use your iOS device's keyboard to search for specific titles, etc. Best of all, the app is free and you can download onto all your iOS devices so everyone can have their own personal remote instead of having just one. Download it free from the app store. It's called "remote". You'll never lose your remote again.

The remote app is great, except you can't connect to the Apple Tv without the original remote. If anyone has a solution to this, I'd love to know.

I tried the software based solution called Remote. Not a huge fan. Dragging to move the selection horizontally does not work that well. It stutters therefore it's really difficult to go from one selection to the other. I still think the hardware remote is the best for responsiveness and convenience as well.
