    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 movie 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.

The scroll function was a horrible addition and Siri functionality is nice, but limited.

      Beats Siri remote to access LARGE... movie/music/TV show Collections

      This remote works great for surfing my large movie collection on the AppleTV 4. Pressing the down button rapidly scrolls thru the By Name list where the Siri r This remote works great for surfing my large movie collection on the AppleTV 4. Pressing the down button rapidly scrolls thru the By Name list where the Siri remote requires 40 or 50 swipe and may easily slip into a the Unwatched or By Genre list. When this happens returning to the By Name list requires starting at the top of the list and 40-50 swipes again (Siri Remote). Whereas, this remote only require one click to smoothly scroll down the list and rapidly find a movie. Solid unit and long battery life- very good control and worth adding to your ATv version 4.

Apple TV Remote? Sexy design, but terribly impractical. Here's a tip: Next time you need to purchase a sofa, take your remote with you. Drop it on the sofa, either near the arm or the back edge of the cushion. Buy the sofa that has easiest access to the secret TV remote hiding places. You're welcome.
