    Has anyone with a LG smart TV with the magic remote had any success in using the limited buttons to control the apple tv. I tried to "fake" it by adding an additional device to the remote control panel, but when I go to the apple TV and attempt to learn these commands, the blue bar only goes about 1/3 across the screen and stops. Its like the remote stops sending commands even when you hold the buttons down.

    I had the same problem. I got past it by pressing the button rapidly myself. Works perfectly now.

    i selected a random dvd player. In my case an LG DVD player with remote control type 9.

    And then on the apple TV I had the apple TV learn this remote for basic operations. I couldnt get it to work for playback controls.
