    Yes, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised to find that one remote can control each apple tv. I hadn't even thought of trying this since I have one remote with a dead battery and haven't gotten a new one yet, so I had been using the remote on my iphone, which I like better, but it's still nice to have the remote in case you can't find your iphone(I use my "findmyiphone" app constantly.) Now, thanks to your question, I do not have to ever buy a battery for the other remote. Thanks!

    Your apple TV remote works with most apple devices not just the Apple TV. I've used it with my MacBook Pro and iMac without even having to pair the two. I've also heard of people using them with the Mac Pro.
