Apple TV Remote Not Controlling Volume On Bose Soundbar 700

I have the Soundbar 700 connected to my TV via optical and the Apple TV (4th Gen) is connected via HDMI to my TV. My TV is an older model and does not have (Arc) support.

I am able to control my Apple TV with the Soundbar 700 remote, but I want to use my Apple TV remote because I like the ability to be to able to swipe on the touchpad of the Apple TV remote.

 

When I go into the Remote Control settings on the Apple TV I am unable to "Learn" the Soundbar 700 remote. It won't detect. Any ideas around this?

 

Thank You!

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for the post, and I'm sorry to hear about the issues you're having with your setup.

 

I don't believe it's possible to use the Apple TV remote to control the Soundbar 700.  You'll need to use either the Universal Remote that came with the Soundbar, or a 3rd party universal remote control.

 

If you have any questions, please let us know!
