Can I access Apple TV with a lost remote and different network

I have lost my remote so have been trying to use my iPhone remote, however, my home network has changed since losing the remote and therefore my phone is on one network and the Apple TV is on another so does not communicate. How can I change the TV network without the remote?

  • Just use an ethernet cable to connect your apple tv directly to your router. Open the remote app on your iPhone or iPad and you should now see the apple tv. Go to apple tv settings and update the WiFi settings. Should be all set from there...
