BestRemotes for Apple TViMore2020
While all Apple TVs come with the Siri Remote, some people just don't like using it. Lucky for you, there are other options if you feel like you want a better experience. Whether you hate the Siri Remote, lost your old one, or are just scouting out the market, these are the best remotes to control your Apple TV.
All-in-one control center: Caavo Control CenterStaff Favorite
The Caavo Control Center has an included remote that is perfect for anyone that uses multiple set-top boxes, such as the Apple TV, game consoles, and more.
The OG: Apple Siri Remote
This black glass remote is what ships with all new Apple TVs. Use the touch trackpad on top of the remote to navigate through menus and control playback.
Upgrade pick: Logitech Harmony 950
If you want a remote control that can do absolutely everything and price isn't a concern, the Logitech Harmony 950 is hands-down the best remote.
Value pick: Logitech Harmony Smart Control
The Smart Control lets you control all of your devices, including your Apple TV, from either the remote itself or your iPhone, using the companion app.
Built-in preset: Inteset 4-in-1 Universal remote
Simply by pushing either the A, B, C, or D buttons, you can set up the remote to function for Apple TV, Xbox One, Windows Media Center, and Roku, respectively.
Budget pick: GE 4-device universal remote (33709)

Although GE 33709 is a very basic remote, it can still work with four devices at once. It also uses conventional AAA batteries which aren't included.
For the gamers: SteelSeries Nimbus
Gaming on Apple TV is so much more fun with a controller, and the MFi certified SteelSeries Nimbus is one of the best options around. Logitech spotlight software download for mac.
Apple Tv Remote Not Working
If you're ok with the original Siri Remote, then, by all means, stick with it. But for my money, the Caavo Control Center is the best remote around for the Apple TV. The voice controls are responsive, letting you easily switch back and forth between apps and channels across your Apple TV, cable box, and other entertainment devices (including the smart TV itself).
If you want something that doesn't require you to hook anything else to your Apple TV, try the Logitech Harmony 950. It's an excellent universal remote with programmable activities that also lets you quickly switch between devices. The touch screen allows you to quickly tap and swipe through your available devices, from your Apple TV to your Blu-ray player.
