      Great Product, Bad Instructions

      Needed to buy a replacement remote for my Apple TV. Followed the pairing instructions, tried several times to pair, didn't work. I returned the remote and exchanged for another one only to have the same issue. Realized that although the instructions said to hold the Right arrow and the Menu button a the same time, found out that it worked when I held the Left arrow down and the Menu button....frustrating way to accomplish an otherwise simple task!

      Bought this because older remote was not working. Two buttons were not responding so needed replacement remote. Apple TV remote for 3rd generation is designed to be simple, but sometimes it is to simple. When “typing” letters for a search, or writing an username, email address or password, it is time consuming to do so. It is st those times wish the remote had keyboard for easier and quicker data entry. I like how the 4th and 5th generations are set up for entering that information (Siri voice control, or keyboard comes on your phone or tablet).

      We have Apple TV. All of a sudden, the remote stopped working. One trip to Walmart to buy a pack of (2) new batteries did not resolve the problem. I thought I was facing a whole new Apple TV purchase or some other brand. All have elevated in price as rather than offer lower prices of existing product due to reduced part costs, new technology which I do not need is introduced which allows the price to be raised. Enter Best Buy – they stock the existing remote so as far as having to buy a whole new product with a bunch of technology I do not need – I am SAVED!!

      My original Apple TV stopped working. Unfortunately I wasted time and money when I bought a new battery. The remote still didn’t work after I replaced the battery. I called Apple Support and they said I needed a new remote and my unit was very old and out of warranty. I went to Best Buy and in record time I was out of the store and on my way home. The new Apple remote worked perfect and within minutes I was back to watching You Tube Videos.

      I have an apple tv. I forget what generation the model is, but it uses this classic controller. But I lost it. Even now, I still don't know where it went to. Anyways, I'm glad I was able to find a replacement, because this unit is no longer in stores. Works the same as the old one. In case you've lost yours, you can use the remote app for the apple tv. I did that for a while. But I replaced my router and could no longer connect. This remote is indispensable.

      I’m a fan of AppleTV in all iterations, but there’s something bizarre about the remotes. They get lost. Not just “stuck in the coach” lost or even “on top of some cabinet” lost. No, they seem to have been designed to slip into a 5th dimension of space time where they can never be recovered. Otherwise, they work fine. Apple sells replacements. Of course.

      Steve Jobs worst idea

      Have to have it to use my Apple TV, but I hate these units. Extremely easy to hit the wrong part of the circular pople control. The center button has too many functions, and using this to move through menus is a PITA. Too much minimalism is no longer an oxymoron. Additionally, don't ever get anything even remotely liquid near it, including greasy fingers from popcorn. It is NOT a sealed unit. Our new one is now in a heat-sealed plastic bag.
