Accidentally the Apple TV had its home sharing turned off (device used was the remote app on iPhone).
The original remote is lost.
Have Apple Mac laptop and HP Laptops also iPad 3rd Gen, and iPhone 5s available.
I have looked up answers but it suggested that I disconnect Apple TV, and connect it to my laptop. Restore settings etc. It seemed like a reasonable work around. Only thing is I am not sure how I am supposed to connect it to a laptop. my question is HOW?
All answers seem to suggest that it's wireless but I don't see how this is possible when Home Sharing has been turned off.
HDMI cable didn't work. Ethernet didn't seem to do anything either. But I maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place - or just doing it incorrectly.
