Unpairing Apple TV from a remote
If you lose the Apple Remote that you paired Apple TV with, you can use another
Apple Remote to unpair Apple TV from the lost remote.
To unpair Apple TV from a paired remote:
Keep the remote pointed directly at Apple TV.
Hold down Menu and Left for 6 seconds.
Or, you can:
Choose Settings from the Apple TV main menu.
Choose General > Remotes > Unpair Apple Remote.
When you successfully unpair the lost remote, Apple TV displays a broken
chainlink symbol (
) above a picture of a remote. You can now pair Apple TV
with a different remote.
