Thanks to both of you for that. On a connected but slightly off topic, I think I once read that it is possible to get an iPad to read the contents of a 2.5" portable unpowered hard drive. Is that true?

I'm not sure if anyone is still looking for a remote cure for ipad but this worked for me.
Check it out. It worked well.

Sure thing Dab. I'm with everyone else. The Apple Remote is dumb. The Satachi remote trick worked perfectly for forwarding and backing up the slides via Keynote.
The only thing is, you need to make sure to not hit any other buttons on the remote or this will trigger siri into talking outloud about all the button fuctions.
So just make sure your remote is all set up BEFORE the presentation starts.
Good luck guys, hope this info find you well.

Shameless plug here (please be gentle when ganging up on me...I have a tender back!) AirTurn now has a tiny wireless Bluetooth remote that can advance slides in Keynote for iPad in VoiceOver mode called the DIGIT II. You can learn more about it at www.AirTurn.com/Digit2
In addition to controlling Keynote slides forwards and backwards, you can also control iTunes on all iOS devices and computers, as well as control iOS cameras for photos and video, and control a wide range of apps from PDF readers to Teleprompting apps. The DIGIT II also works great with iBooks and the Kindle for iPad apps (again, in VoiceOver mode)
The DIGIT II will start shipping on Monday, Sept. 9, and is available now for pre-order at http://store.airturn.com/digit-ii/

Oh, by the way, the DIGIT II has a button for silencing the voice in VoiceOver mode, so once you're set up with starting your presentation, you can make sure that annoying voice stays quiet

Hidden AirPlay feature in the AppleTV 6.1 (iOS 7.1) update
"In addition to bonjour negotiation for AirPlay, iOS 7.1 devices will also look for AirPlay sources over bluetooth when doing it’s scan!"
Although this does not address the original problem stated in this thread it does offer an alternative solution for giving presentations. I have found that Keynote on my iPad works well with an Apple TV and Airplay but, up until now, the iPad must be on the same wifi network. This can be a problem for some locations. There are reports that the bluetooth feature only works with the latest iPads - it will be a few days before I can try it on my system.
I expect that the limited range of bluetooth will be an issue for some presenters.
