Apple TV Infrared Remote Free

Apple TV Infrared Remote Free


An Apple TV remote app that uses your device's infrared (IR) blaster. This app will work without needing to jailbreak your Apple TV. This app supports all Android 4.4 (KitKat) devices with an infrared (IR) blaster and any Android Samsung devices that have an infrared (IR) blaster.

Features:
- Control your Apple TV via infrared (IR) without having to jailbreak your Apple TV
- Keyboard support that lets you type on your device and it sends the infrared codes either after every letter or all at once
- Holding directional and menu buttons down will keep sending those codes across

How to use the keyboard:
- First open the on-screen keyboard on the Apple TV
- Then click the A button on the app to show the keyboard on your Android device
- Keep the device aimed at the Apple TV and start typing
- If you want to send codes all at once (for example when entering an email address), hit the toggle button labeled Letter to change it to Word(s) after which you'll need to click Send to send the codes at once (make sure your device is pointed at the Apple TV throughout the entire send)

The following are Samsung Android devices that have an infrared (IR) blaster:

Samsung Galaxy S4 (also Mini/Active/Zoom)
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and 10.1
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (and Plus)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

The following will ONLY work with Android 4.4 (KitKat) as of version 1.7:
HTC One

Currently unsupported (even with Android 4.4 KitKat):
LG G2 (unfortunately LG did not implement the Infrared API per Google's KitKat specification; I'm currently looking into using LG's SDK)

SETUP PLEASE READ:
If you have a Samsung Android device with infrared (IR) and the app doesn't work (Apple TV LED will blink three times to each button you click on the app), then please do the following:

On the Apple TV, go to Settings > General > Remotes > Unpair Apple Remote

This unpairs the little Apple TV remote and allows this app as well as any other universal remote to work.

If you are having trouble, please contact me and provide a screenshot, what device you're using, and what version of Android it's on and I'll work to fix it.

SUPPORT

Lost appletv remote, so how I do I unpair it? I lost my appletv remote--apparently it was swallowed by the recliner and no one's seen it since. So when I use my Galaxy S4 with this app to control the appletv, I get the three blinks thingy. Then the instructions go further to discuss unpairing the appletv remote from the appletv. But you need the remote to do that, so now what? Pls help. I need to keep watching "Silicon Valley!" thx
