My new Apple TV remote worked great since I got it. Had to do a reboot on my Apple TV this afternoon. Since then I had to repair my remote, no biggie, BUT I keeps displaying “bring your remote closer to finish pairing” and then the remote stops controlling the sound on the tv. No new updates or anything for me, just a normal reboot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Had this issue when turning it off as well. I paired it again by holding back and volume up on the remote close to the ATV. I started to put to sleep instead.

Later I found out that it was because the remote battery was low so you should try charging it.

Thanks for the suggestion. Gave it a try and still no joy.
