View Full Version : Apple Remote issues

Loving my ATV so far with the exception of one issue. My Apple Remote effects both my ATV and my MBP. Tried pairing my remote with the ATV but to no avail, how do I get the remote to not effect my MBP by bringing up front row etc (short of moving it out of the room)?

On your MBP, goto System preference/security and disable remote on it.

When you use the Apple Remote with Apple TV, make sure of the following:

If youíve paired Apple TV and an Apple Remote, make sure youíre using the paired remote:
If youíre using the paired remote and the Apple TV status light flashes white, the problem isnít with the remote.
If youíre using an unpaired remote, the Apple TV status light flashes amber.
If youíve paired Apple TV and an Apple Remote, and you canít find the paired remote, set Apple TV to work with any remote by pressing and holding the Menu and Previous/Rewind buttons for 6 seconds.
Point the remote directly at Apple TV.
Make sure the IR receiver on the front of Apple TV isnít blocked.
Another remote may be paired with Apple TV. You may want to unpair the remote and then pair it again.
