I just gotta ask: how do you intend on controlling it with a current Apple Remote? Or is that not part of the edits that you've done; more just a layout mockup?
You wanna have some fun with remote designs?
EDIT: Here's what I see as the simplest possible remote to control either an Apple HDTV or an Apple TV+TV.
Power would handle power for either the TV or both the TV and Apple TV. Circle's for navigation, button in the center is for accepting. Menu brings up the menu (or takes you back to the menu; probably that) wherever you are in the UI. Volume rocker handles volume.
Maybe Power would be in the center, but then you still have the volume rocker asymmetry, so I put it on the other side.
Doesn't need a number pad, doesn't need those four colored buttons (whatever those are supposed to do on a Blu-ray player…).

Nine buttons to bring you the best television experience you've ever had. And the simplest one since the days of just ABC, NBC, and CBS.
