I have lost the remote for my 2nd gen Apple TV. Apple says this is no problem, thanks to the Apple TV Remote app. BUT - the instructions, here:
Open the Apple TV Remote app, tap Add Apple TV, then tap your Apple TV."
If asked, enter the four-digit code on your iOS device that appears on your Apple TV."
Except that's not how it works for me. When I tap "Add Apple TV" in the app on my iPad, the app replies:
To pair your iPad, enter this code on your Apple TV under Settings > General > Remotes"
A subtly but critically different directive, in fact the reverse of what Apple says it should be - and I clearly can't do this since the whole point of the operation is that I don't have the Apple TV remote to be able to input anything to the Apple TV.
Did I go wrong somewhere?
