Use the 'grid-style' input interface on the new Apple TV

Nice little detail:

To use the old-style password entry screen on the new Apple TV, wake the Apple TV using the old silver remote, and don’t touch the new Siri remote.

I tested it, and as far as I can tell it works for anywhere input is needed, not just for password entry.

So you get this:

Th  'grid-style' input interface used by older Apple TV models,

Th  'grid-style' input interface used by older Apple TV models,

Instead of this:

The 'row-style' input interface used by the new Apple TV model,

The 'row-style' input interface used by the new Apple TV model,

Personally, I like the new row layout more than the old grid layout, but I know many - a very vocal many - that don't.
