    when i purchased my apple tv and used the remote that came with it, it also affects my macbook, is there a way to disconnect the remote from the mac?

    not sure if you've tried it but you should use the remote app on your iphone...then you can pick your library (apple tv or macbook) and control it with that

    This will work. Or, you can pair the remote with your AppleTV. Then it will stop affecting the MacBook.
