    Sounds complicated, but it's pretty simple ;) Our Apple Remote died, so we can't set up our Apple TV in our new apartment. We also don't have access to the wireless router that connects to the internet.

    My plan based on this workaround:
    -Connect ATV to Airport Express via Ethernet
    -Join the Airport Express WiFi with my iPhone
    -Start controlling the Airport Express with my phone

    Unfortunately, the ATV doesn't show up in my remote app. What am I doing wrong?

    Not 100% sure, but I believe to be able to use the remote app (or maybe at least set it up), you have to be able to access Apple servers to do the Home Sharing authentication. Might be missing something though.
