I was wondering if this remote would work on the atv2 via bluetooth.

In theory, yes, but I don't think anyone has actually tried it yet.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

It wasn't possible last year

And judging from the BTstack project page, I don't believe there's been any improvement.

This is quite a tricky remote to get working when you don't use the USB dongle (ppl report it disconnects after 5mn), even on linux, let alone on ATV2...

I wouldn't get my hope too high, but since I haven't actually tried it, you may get some kind of success if you try. Please share experiences if you do.
