Apple TV Remote Tip

Apple TV is an awesome media streaming device for cord cutters, but I have a bone to pick with you Apple. The remote is too small and sleek so it's constantly disappearing.

Whether it disappears under a pile of magazines on an end table or it ends up between the couch cushions of the couch, the question is always the same: has anyone seen the Apple TV remote.

Well, there's a cure for anyone else that has a house full of suffering users; just re-program your TV remote to control the Apple TV box as well.

Most users may not know about an option in the Settings of the device that allows you to make use of an unused input on your TV or cable universal remote to control it.

Since most of us don’t use a VCR anymore, that input is usually a good choice.

It only takes a few minutes to get setup and it can change the world in your house.
