It'a just weird that an apple tv should ship like it was paired before with a remote and refused to pair with the one in the box....

So the old remotes work ?
That's great !
I have a couple of the old ones (one aluminum, one plastic) laying around from old Macbooks.
If the new one breaks i'll have back up, and this is good news because the Siri Remote is kinda expensive - 80 Euros here in Romania - that's about 90$.

One person mentioned that he had to turn Bluetooth on using his old remote to get the new remote working.

My plastic remote works pretty well...

Yes - it's exactly what happened.
What if a person doesn't have an old remote??? :)
