How to Pair and Unpair Apple Remote With Apple TV 2G

Advertisements

Apple TV can be configured to respond only to a certain remote. The Apple Remote works with the built-in IR receiver on Apple TV just like other Apple products.  You can set Apple TV to work only with the included remote by pairing Apple TV and the remote. Pairing can be very useful in case you have multiple Apple products i.e. iMac, MacBook and Apple TV. Using remote universally can cause nearby experience issues since remote working with all devices.

Note : By default, the included remote comes unpaired.

2. Choose General > Remotes > Pair Apple Remote.
You can also press and hold Menu and Right for 6 seconds to pair Apple TV and the Apple Remote.
When you successfully pair your Apple Remote, Apple TV displays a chain link  symbol above a picture of a remote. Apple TV now works only with the paired remote.

To unpair Apple TV from a Remote

In case you lost the paired remote you can use any  Apple Remote to unpair Apple TV from a remote. Press and hold the Menu and Previous/Rewind buttons on a white Apple Remote for 6 seconds, or the Menu and Left buttons on an aluminum Apple Remote for 6 seconds. When you successfully unpair the lost remote, Apple TV displays a broken chain link  symbol above a picture of a remote. You can now pair Apple TV with a different remote.
