    Apple Remote with iPod and iPhone

    If you connect your iPod to a home stereo, powered speakers or TV set, the Apple Remote lets you experience your songs, slideshows and more from across the room. Plug your iPod into the Apple Universal Dock and choose a playlist, slideshow or video. Then sit back, relax and enjoy. Ready to move on to the next song? No need to get up. Just press the Next button on the Apple Remote. Getting a call on your iPhone? Press Pause, then pick up where you left off.

    Apple Remote with Mac

    The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos and DVDs from anywhere in the room. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a film trailer.

    Keep in mind, Apple TV can only connect to one remote at a time. If you wish to play multiple-player games, you’ll need an iOS device or controller.

      Apple TV Remote

      I have four Apple remotes for my apple tv's and three of the four Apple remotes have failed when trying to use the up button on the remote. Three of my Apple T I have four Apple remotes for my apple tv's and three of the four Apple remotes have failed when trying to use the up button on the remote. Three of my Apple TV remotes up button stopped working. I will be taking them back to the store this morning and hopefully Apple will provide me with three new Apple TV remotes. The fact that 3 of my 4 Apple TV remotes up button doesn't work tells me it is an Apple design flaw or the batch of Apple TV remotes I received shouldn't have passed quality control.

      I hate this remote

Way too small for anyone to try and keep track of. If I could add up the hours of my life I've spent looking for it in the couch cushions, I could have solved several world problems. I can't wait til the next new technology makes my Apple TV and its devil child spawn remote obsolete. I'm going to destroy this stupid thing...if I can find it. For now I'll just buy a new one to replace the one that's currently AWOL. So annoyed.....

      Trendy design over functionality

The right/forward button has never worked properly since the day we opened the box. Finally after a year of sticky/intermittent functioning of that button we pried the thing apart (another annoying thing about Apple is they make all their products impossible to get into and fix). We discovered some sort of sticky glue over top of a button that wasn't seated correctly that could not be repaired. While I understand that manufacturing glitches happen, that is not my only issue with this remote. Like another user stated -- by removing all the buttons to have the "coolest" looking remote on the market, Apple has given us a remote that is a headache to use. Constant scrolling, tedious, takes too much time. Yes, our regular TV and video remotes and Comcast remotes are hugely clunky by comparison, but they aren't nearly as annoying to use.

      proof that the devil is alive

      This tiny sliver of h*ll has torn apart my living room and my family. I'm not sure why it needs to be so small unless I am actually a giant and nobody has told This tiny sliver of h*ll has torn apart my living room and my family. I'm not sure why it needs to be so small unless I am actually a giant and nobody has told me for my entire life. So maybe I should thank Apple for dropping some truth on me.

      Absolute junk

      I got this remote less than a week ago and it didn't work right out of the package. The buttons are not even moving when I press them. I checked out support and I got this remote less than a week ago and it didn't work right out of the package. The buttons are not even moving when I press them. I checked out support and just went in circles. I don't and can't talk to anyone on the phone for my own reasons. I just wanted to send it in for a repair or replacement and they made that impossible for me. I'm an hour away from the nearest Apple store so that's just not an option. The remote is junk, I can't use it, and now I'm stuck with it and if I want to use my Apple TV I will have to buy a new one. I don't have the resources to buy one every time it doesn't work. The app they have is unreliable so can't go that way either. I'm going to miss my Apple TV.
