    Mine works fine for both of my Apple TVs and my music collection on my Mac.

    By the way your English is a lot better than a lot of the Americans on here.

    I am having the same issue. My watch shows up on the Apple TV, I enter the 4 digit code and then nothing happens. I'm brought back to the main screen to add a device. My tv shows that I'm connected. I hope someone has a work around. Thanks.

    Mine works with the three TVs in my home. Make sure Home Sharing is turned on.

    Mine seemed to work with no error at all. I never had to put in a four digit code like a few of you have said. Just make sure you have home sharing on and that you are using the same Apple ID that's being used on the Apple TV. I also use it on my phone and have logged on in that app, that could be the reason it worked right away

    I haven't received my watch yet to set it up, but from what people are saying it sounds like there are two ways to connect the watch to your ATV. The code is probably via Bluetooth whilst others are using Homesharing which will be via wifi.

    Homesharing is probably the better option if you can use it with your setup.

    I finally got it to work. I had to reset my watch and then it worked. This was the recommended advice from my local friendly Apple Store employee.

    Was doing the same for me. Rebooted my AppleTV and it started working. Don't really care for the Remote app though. It's easier to the use the physical one. The app takes too long to find and load, and the buttons get hit accidentally when the screen turns on unintentionally sometimes. Also, the play button is so tiny.
