New remote for the Directv Now beta testing devise

I am a beta tester for the DirecTV now device. I have the original remote which I have problems with. How do I get the updated remote. I would pay for it if I could get it.

Just use a DirecTV remote. $5 on eBay. Or a universal with DirecTV codes. Updated remote  does not exist yet.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of a DTV or universal remote that would also provide voice input to the Osprey.  I agree that the existing remote has major limitations/problems (odd shape, poor layout, problematic touchpad/D-pad, marginal buttons, no backlight, lacking numerous direct access buttons, etc., etc.)  But it does have the voice button, and as far as I know, it is still the remote that they'd currently like us testing with.
