    Currently we have two ATV3s located in a central rack in a closet, outputting to two different rooms. They basically rely on URC/IR extenders to get the signal to them and they are not within bluetooth range. With the ATV4 using bluetooth for its remote, does that basically make ATV4 a no-go for me? Has anyone discovered a workaround?

    thx

    Hey ... I have the same setup (URC remotes and a A/V rack located in my basement). I haven't tested the Bluetooth distance, but I believe the ATV4 supports IR commands as well, so you will lose the trackpad and Siri, but could still navigate the menus, etc.
