Here is how to pair your remote with an Apple TV;
- Go to Setting-> General-> Remotes, from your Apple TV.
- Choose Pair Apple Remote.
You may be wondering if your remote is not paired, how do you preform the steps above. You can also press and hold the Menu and right buttons on the Apple Remote for 6 seconds to pair the two.
Once you’ve successfully paired your Apple Remote, you should see a chain link symbol above a picture of a remote on your TV and your remote should function as normal.
