Downloaded iOS 12.2 without a problem. One issue: the “Apple TV Remote” in the Control Center no longer controls the volume on my home theater system. Before this update, the physical volume buttons on the phone adjusted the volume on my A/V receiver when using the Remote on Control Center. Now this functionality doesn’t work.
Interestingly, it does work when using the actual Remote app... but not the Control Center version.
Anyone else? Any suggestions? Thanks all!

EDIT: Also, rewind/FF controls also not working (again, they do work on the regular App, but not the Control Center interface)

I actually had to update my AppleTV and it made the CC remote usable again.

I’m able to control the volume again and the time scrubbing works again.

Hope you’re able to get to work again.

One cool thing that I noticed pop up was after the aTV update I get a small remote on my iPhone lock screen.

Pretty slick.

Thanks. Ya.. after multiple resets both of the Apple TV and iPhone, it’s still hit and miss. It works once, then it’ll stop working... meaning that the volume and scrubbing controls don’t work.
But the App itself seems to work consistently, so for now that’s a workaround til they fix the bug in the CC tool.
Thanks!!
