    Default Text Entry with ABC Mode

    Forgive me if this has been asked and answered, the topic keywords are to vague for me to adequately mine the search results. Is there a way to enable ABC mode text entry similar to a cell phone with a universal remote on the ATV? It would be cool if the "2" button on the remote could mean 2, A, B or C when entering text. I've used JP1 to program remotes before so maybe the code could be on the remote side, though I doubt it.

    BRTextEntryController *controller = [[BRTextEntryController alloc] initWithTextEntryStyle:2];

    however it does not lay it self out and you will need your own subclass to get it to be anything like the search section in youtube. here is an example of what one looks like being directly replaced by one of my other text entry styles:

    Thanks,

    So, is "initWithTextEntryStyle" a setting I need to change somehow somewhere?
