Hi matt.steinruck

 

Thanks for replying back!  

 

The reason this remote won't work with the Apple TV is because it doesn't have the necessary buttons to program to the Apple TV like an enter button, menu button, or directional pad.  This remote was designed to only control the soundbar.  

 

Warm Regards,

Tony, the only functions needed here are for volume.

It's the Learning section that ONLY looking for volume control on the Apple TV. 

The only buttons it asks for are + and - which are easily identifiable on the Bose remote, as simple as it is.

That should be a simple process.

Hello matt.steinruck

 

Thanks for replying back.  The issue here is this basic remote has a specific remote signature designed specifically just to control the Solo 5 system.  If you want control for the Apple TV, please look into the remote that Mohsin posted previously.  

 

Thank you,
