    Hello All,

    I was wondering if there is an Alternative 3rd party remote which is compatible with ATV 4? Please let me know! :)

    Your iPhone is also a good alternative, but what are you looking for as far as functionality goes?

    Not with all the features. That's why I never bought the Logitech. An iPhone/app comes closest.

    Any remote that can control earlier :apple:TV3... unless you're looking for touch pad and game controlling functionality. For that, you'll have to be patient to see if third parties like Logitech or Universal Remote Control, Inc decide to make one with greater compatibility with the :apple:TV4 remote.

    I use a Harmony in addition to the AppleTV 4 remote. The issue with the Harmony (and I suppose most/all of those remotes with directional buttons vs trackpad) is that scrolling long distances is a pain.

    The old Apple TV 3 remote will also work with the Apple TV 4.
