    I have had my ATV 4 for about 6 months and now find the remote battery is running completely down at least once a week. Is this normal?

    No. Mine lasts months on a charge. Have an Apple Store genius check it out.

    Mine might last 2 months maybe 3...

    my kids love games and pressing the buttons. my daughter sometimes pauses/unpauses stuff a lot or hits the triple tap to get CC on...just to hit buttons.

    Battery sounds defective. With a good battery I doubt that is possible even with constant usage. Apple should warranty that for you if its 6 months old and I wouldn't wait. The ATV remote is 80 bucks so its probably worth your time to have them replace it.

    have you tried rebooting the aTV?

    the remote normally drops it's bluetooth connection after a bit, maybe something got a little screwey and it's staying connected all the time
