setup new apple tv remote

I have 3rd generation apple tv and I lost my remote. I purchased a new remote but I can not get the apple tv to turn on.

  • You may have to unpair the first remote, by setting up the remote app on your iPhone and using that to select to unpair the old remote. Then, hold menu and right for 5 seconds on the new remote while pointing it at your Apple TV, until you see the flashing chain links above the remote on the screen.
