Fixing the volume buttons on the Apple TV remote
This one is more of a bookmark for myself since it seems to happen at least once a year. All of a sudden the volume controls stop working on the Apple TV remote.
My first thought was an app had updated, introducted a bug, and blocked volume control.
But then I think, how can it control my television's own volume control?
Turns out, you just need to reboot the remote 🤔
- Hold down the
Control Centerbutton and the
volume downbutton together for 5 seconds
- Wait for the remote to reboot, and try using it
