    Hello all,

    I have my iPhone set to automatically lock. However, this is annoying when using the Remote App with the Apple TV.
    Is there a way to avoid the remote app on the iPhone locking?

    I cant think of it, only way I can see is to set the auto lock to a longer time before it locks

    You can't have a separate lock/unlock time for just the Remote app without jailbreaking. You'll have to set the autolock time manually each time you sit down and intend to use the iPhone as a remote.

    It's a shame Apple don't disable autolock for this app as it's annoying to have to enter my passcode just to rewind ...
    I think some other apps prevent the iPhone from autolocking, why can't Apple's ...?

    I don't think so. In my experience if the phone is set to auto-lock, apps can't interfere with that. I could be wrong though.

    Why not send your request to Apple as feedback?

    I seem to remember an exercise app (Runkeeper?) and Mobile Mouse not autolocking.

    I might just use the hardware remote ...
