How To Enable Your Traditional TV Remote To Control The Apple TV

Even though the Apple TV remote works well enough, but sometimes it is not easy to find them, or perhaps detest to having multiple remote controls. If you’re one of those people like me who like to use traditional remotes. Your Apple TV can be actually learn to accept input from your TV, receiver, cable box or other remote control. Here's how!
    1. Go to Settings on the main screen of your Apple TV. then select “Remote and Devices”.
    2. Once you are in the “Remote and Devices” menu select “Learn Remote".
    3. You will see a prompt that tells you to get your remote ducks in a row, Click on "Start"
    4. Just follow the instructions on your Apple TV screen and select buttons on the remote.
    5. After you set up the remote controls, you will need to name the configuration.
    6. When it's done, you can click on "OK", or setup advanced configuration, by selecting Set Up Playback Buttons” option.

    However, it should be noted here that there might be a good chance you don’t even needs to program the Apple TV to use an IR remote if you have newer equipment in the house, as the Apple TV supports HDMI-CEC, an over-the-wire control standard baked right into newer HDMI devices. It supports both Bluetooth and traditional infrared remote.
