“Apple doesn’t seem to pour too much love on the Apple TV, but frequent speculation claims the company has bit plans for the product, potentially including a Netflix-style movie service,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld. “Meanwhile, if you are one of the millions who owns an Apple TV and also uses an iOS device then you may need these tips.”
“If you’ve not begun using the Remote app with your Apple TV then download it immediately,” Evans writes. “One of its best features is when you access Netflix from your Apple TV, when the Remote app gives you a proper keyboard to type in movie titles – much less unwieldy than attempting to type it one letter at a time with the silver remote.”
“Access Apple TV>Settings>General>Remotes and select learning remote,” Evans writes. “Now you can set and map almost any universal remote control to use with your Apple TV. When you choose this option your Apple TV will show icons that represent the six buttons on the Apple remote, and you map these to available keys on your universal remote.”
