    Recently noticed that my iPhone is no longer giving me a popup from my ATV for the keyboard input anymore. Is this something that was removed/broken or a setting I am missing? Used to work all the time, no issues. I can't seem to figure it out what's going on.

    Even in the new remote app there is no keyboard input option anymore.

    Hmmmm. I haven't had any problem. I have the latest beta on the ATV and iPhone, 12.3 b5

    Do you have your Apple TV & iPhone on separate Wi-Fi SSID’s at all? I had this issue and figured out it was due to the ATV being on a separate 5GHz Wi-Fi SSID and the iPhone on the 2.4GHz band.

    Possibly check Siri search options via remote app settings.
    As it does include look up keyboard etc..
    Think I'm latest 12.3 pb 5 and others have confined ap4k tv keyboard pops up fine.

    The keyboard function works via Bluetooth, so make sure that isn't turned off.

    Its working now. Checked it a few hours after posting the thread. It popped up like it should. It was not weeks and days prior. Maybe a bug and restarting helped? Not the first time a restart resolved issues. Thanks all for the suggestions!

    Mine pops up and accepts input but it never shows up in the ATV4k input box.
    But if I use the ATV remote and enter through there, I see the input reflected on the iPhone :)
