Take Control of Apple TV, Chapter 3: Control Your Apple TV
With only four buttons, the Apple Remote included with your Apple TV is quite possibly the most elegant remote control ever made. However, that simplicity hides some useful features. This chapter will teach you how to master the Apple Remote’s basic features and shortcuts. But you’re not limited to the Apple Remote; the Apple TV can be commanded by a third-party remote, an iOS device with Apple’s Remote app, or a Bluetooth keyboard. Each option offers considerably more power than the Apple Remote, and each has its own particular strengths (and weaknesses).
Thanks for the information. However, it is not clear when you pair your Mac keyboard to the Apple TV using Type2Phone whether or not the keyboard is still (concurrently) paired with the Mac. Do you have to un-pair with the Apple TV to use the keyboard with the Mac or simply quit Type2Phone?
Hi Joel. No, you don't even have to quit Type2Phone. if you switch away from the app, it disconnects from the Apple TV.
Thank you for this trick to 'Restart the Apple TV'.
