    Go into the Security preferences on your laptop and check "Disable remote control infrared receiver".

    Yes, that works if you pair a remote to each thing. If you pair the remote to AppleTV and don't do anything with the laptop, the remote will control both. That's why I turned it completely off on my laptop.
