Yah. Bit bizarre really. Can't figure in my case why it's ALWAYS the 6 that get's kicked off, not the 5s. Or why it can't now add 3 devices when it adds 2 OK. Or why the Pairable Devices NEVER populates.
Has anyone tried to pair more than one ATV Remote App (device) with ATV4?
When I pair a second (iPad) then go back to first (iPhone) it goes through pairing procedure again. Back and forth loop. TV OS 9.2.2
According to Apple support, multiple devices are supported: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/ht201664
"You can pair more than one Apple TV Remote app to an Apple TV".
Initially it behaved just like before. I was like "AGAIN????? SERIOUSLY???? YOU #=%)(#€"")€(%!!!"Hmmm...
I was out of town, and was anxious to try. I still can't pair iPhone (7+) and iPad (Pro) to 4th Gen Apple TV.
Initially it behaved just like before. I was like "AGAIN????? SERIOUSLY???? YOU #=%)(#€"")€(%!!!"
Then I tried removing all known Remote App devices from the ATV + removing all known ATVs from the Remote App... then I re-paired everything from scratch, and presto – I was able to pair two iPhones and two iPads. So it would appear that starting with a clean slate is the ticket.
Ha. I just noticed this too, but this time it seems to only be an issue when using the Apple TV app from control center. And not every time. Weird.Oh no. It started again. Wants a new passcode every time I switch from iPhone to iPad as remote. Refuses to list more than one device under Remote app pairings. Deja vu all over again.
Is it gonna take them a year to fix it this time too?
Edit: This is specifically about the mini remote app in Control Center. Apple TV wants another passcode for that one. The passcode for the ‘normal’ app appears to stick for each device, it’s the Control Center one that now behaves like the regular app used to do in the beginning of this thread...
