Apple TV 404

Somewhere in a box of stuff in our storage room lies a sleek Apple TV remote control. Nice. simple, and hard to find.

Apple provides an app that lets you control your Apple TV from your iOS device. It works reasonably well, except after a software upgrade. When the device restarts, it wants to confirm its network connection and device name.

apple.tv.config.screen

You cannot, however, use the iOS app ┬áto do this. Even though Air Play mirroring works, the app can’t find the Apple TV device.

Grr.
