    Simple design, too simple

    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).

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    Needed a Replacement Remote for Apple TV

    Remote for older Apple TV just stopped working. Was glad to find an identical replacement. Had some issues pairing it to the Apple TV at first, the instructions called for pressing left or right (I forget which) and it ended up working when I did the opposite... No idea why, all that mattered is it worked and I didn't need to buy a new box.

    My kids dumped a drink on my original remote for my Apple TV. Unfortunately it stopped working. I ordered this hoping it would work and it did. Oddly the directions for connecting it to my Apple TV didn’t work, I had to do the opposite of what it said and then it connected just fine. Deducting a star because in the short time I’ve had it, it already has dents in the casing. It’s obviously very flimsy metal.
