If I lose my Siri remote, is there an alternative option to control my media streamer?

I do not have an iTV Siri remote. Am I able to use a basic universal remote or an alternative device to work my streamer? Or do I have to replace it with its original Siri remote from Apple before I can use it again?

    You have a couple of options. You can use the AppleTV App for iPhone that will work the same way that the siri remote works. You can download it from the App Store and put it on your iPad or iPhone devices. I've also found that if you have an old AppleTV remote from the previous generations, they will work also, but you won't have access to the Siri functionality. Hope that answers your questions.
