In one of my previous blog entries I was ranting about HDCP and how I can’t watch netflix because I can’t stream it from my iOS device to the Apple TV. This is still ridiculous but I figured out how to watch netflix without the Apple TV remote, and here’s how.
I downloaded the Apple Remote app on my iPhone (I Don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner). After you download the app you select Home Sharing, sign in and bingo there’s the apple TV. You can do anything you can do with the apple TV remote except if I misplace my iPhone I can always make it play a sound with Find My iPhone. So there you have it, a simple solution to a simple problem. And I didn’t have to go out and buy another Apple TV remote just to have my kids lose it again. I guess we can be friends again Apple.
