I just bought the new AirPort Express (released June 2012, looks like a white Apple TV).  I have noted that the AirPort Express Remote Control (URM-17A) does not work with this model.  It worked just fine with the previous AirPort Express (the wireless N version that plugged into the wall).  So it appears that there are no IR remotes that are compatible with the AirPort Express.  Does Apple have any plans to support this device in the future?


I find this frustrating because I like to have an IR remote to quickly pause the music when the Remote app would otherwise be too slow.
