I lost the remote for my ATV-1. I bought a new one, and I am unable to pair it. Now I have already tried the hold the Menu and RR/FF to "Un-pair/Pair" the remote, but it still does not work. I don't even see the little light on the ATV flicker when I use the remote.
Plan B was for me to gain access to the ATV-1 via my iPhone remote and pair it that way.
I enabled home sharing on my iMac (OS-Lion) iTunes, and can control and play music on the ATV-1 via my iPhone, but the ATV-1 does not show up, only my iTunes library.
I believe the problem is, I need to turn on home sharing on the ATV-1 to see it show up on my iPhone, and iMAC.
I guess there is a possibility the battery is dead in the new Apple remote
Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.
