    Remove an Apple TV from Remote in Control Center?

    I did a factory reset on an older Apple TV, but it still shows up in the drop-down of Apple TVs from “Choose a TV” in the remote function in Control Center. Is there a way to remove this?

    New Apple TV Remote Mute Button…

    Who asked for this stupid mute button… and right in the same place where you’ve been trained to press play/pause all these years… so annoying… if I wanted the sound to stop I’d hit pause… I can think of far more useful buttons if they were gonna add stuff….

    New ATV remote delay

    Every time I boot the ATV up the volume/back buttons are always lagging/delayed slightly. Only a restart or re-pairing (hold volume up + back button) fixes it. It happens 100% of the time on initial power on. Tried resets, hdmi cords etc. Is this common with os 15? Seemed to happen after updating.

    Apple TV 4k 2021 remote buttons unresponsive requiring power cycle

    I am having 2 issues with the ATV 4k 2021. About 10% of the time when I turn the ATV on with the remote the scroll/touch wheel works, but none of the buttons work. The only way to fix it is to unplug the ATV and it starts working again. The other issue is that the HDMI CEC randomly stops...

    Can Apple TV Remote Be Programmed to Skip Forward/backward 10 Seconds in YouTube App?

    The Apple TV control center app in iOS/iPadOS has buttons to skip forward or go backward 10 seconds, which I use all the time when watching YouTube. When clicking the direction wheel on the new Apple TV remote, it doesn't do that. Curious if there is a way to achieve this.

    Apple Remote Desktop

    Does Apple Remote Desktop allow connections to Mac-Mini-M1's outside! of the same network with login screen access (no monitor connected)? (aka. does it work like teamviewer)? (one time payment of 80usd sounds better to me than 30usd for teamviewer every month)

    Remote IR Plate Misaligned on Apple TV 4K (2021)

    It’s hard to see from the picture below but if you run your finger up the top left of the remote you can feel the black plate is hanging off just a little. If you run your finger down the top right in the remote you can feel that the plate isn’t flush with the body of the remote. And that their...

    Weird pressure point on my new Apple TV remote

    Hey guys, I just got a second Apple TV 4K for my bedroom tv and I already have an Apple TV 4K in my living room for almost a year now.

    Home Looking for 'the best' integrated remote control...

    I've got the Harmony Hub from Logitech, and it works 'most of the time'. Occasionally, something doesn't work well, and everything has to be power cycled, but for the most part it seems to be working. EXCEPT it seems to love, out of the blue, to turn on both the U-Verse box, and the Blu-ray...

    Apple TV Remotes No Longer Work as of 4/2

    My wife and I noticed that our Apple TV remote was no longer working this morning. We tried charging it, but it didn't help, and the Apple TV didn't report that it was charging (on screen). We didn't think much of it, but figured a hardware issue must've come up with it. A few hours later, we...
