Not sure what you mean by this.Can’t park two controllers
For some games, yes. A controller would be better than the Siri Remote 1.is it worth buying a games pad?
I was concerned about getting the newest ATV4K2 just for the issue you have.What’s the best solution?
I have the HD model older one and newer one little difference other than the remote.Not sure what you mean by this.
For some games, yes. A controller would be better than the Siri Remote 1.
But, there are a few games that the Siri Remote 1 is actually better than using a controller.

While I haven't done it yet, people claim that the older Siri Remote 1 will pair with the ATV4K2.
The trouble is getting one, as Apple doesn't sell them anymore. I found some reasonably priced on eBay.
I haven't gotten a new ATV4K2 yet, but when I do, I will get the older Siri Remote to use on it.
Yes you can, ATV4K & ATV4/HD supports up to 4 Bluetooth controllers.Yes a controller would be good but I mean you can’t pair two controllers to one Apple TV I have the older model still too.
Bluetooth settings and check the paired devices.How can I check this to see if I am?
Only one? 😜 Practically all of them, except maybe the simplest ones, have severe issues from my experience, and many are simply unplayable. It’s pathetic, really. The exact same games work perfectly on the iPhone or iPad. I’m only left with one game that I truly enjoy playing with my Xbox controller paired with the ATV and that’s Sonic Racing. But even that game has frustrating glitches and bugs, loss of sound and server connection problems, and hang-ups/freezes to the point where only a system restart will remedy the problem. It’s not the games themselves that are necessarily bad, it’s just the Apple TV implementation that’s embarrassingly bad. They’ve had years and I haven’t seen any sign of improvement whatsoever, so I think it’s safe to say that the ATV will never provide even a decent casual gaming experience, sadly.I use the SS Nimbus on my ATVs which has been great, but there was at least one game on Apple Arcade that I had issues with it.
Another one ... already? I guess that would be Gen-7 ?So they bring new box and remote out rumours of another one coming too and no way to play games without a game pad. I may look to buy a Nintendo switch as they have a sports bowling game now is that a better option?
Wish they’d improve the graphics on the games , it’s not like the atv is underpowered is it ?
The raw graphics capability of the A10X in the 2017 ATV4K1 is almost three times the performance of the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The current 2021 ATV4K2 with the A12 is actually less powerful when it comes to raw graphics performance than the older 2017 ATV4K1 with the A10X, making it less desirable for gaming.
There are benefits of the ATV4K2 over the ATV4K1 when it comes to streaming content, but the older one has an edge for gaming in terms of the graphics capability.
The problem with direct ATV comparisons, is that there isn't really much interest in the Apple TVs, especially for gaming. So, that means there isn't much interest in doing side by side comparisons, so to compare the performance difference in the chips for benchmarks, you have to use other devices that have those chips.I heard this a couple time. Is there an article or something that demonstrates this? I went looking and everything I find that did GPU specific benchmarks tend to end similar to this...
