In almost every android TV box is a standard IR remote. It is very short and you can not enjoy the maximum potential of android by this "simple" remote. We therefore recommend to make use of a flymouse and or keyboard. If flymouse we recommend the Rii I7 to. If Flymouse / Keyboard we recommend Mele F10 Deluxe and MX3 on. Would you prefer a touchpad. Then we recommend the Rii K12 or Rii Mini I8 to.
