How to select songs on the 4th gen Apple TV? Really... (OS 10 tv)

Seriously, is there an EASY way to choose the songs or artist on the Apple TV?

I can't believe that it should be this hard. I am a subscriber of Apple's music is my iTunes stuff in the cloud and see Apple TV. Everything is good. Random play is ok.

But when I want to play an album by an artist of some, that's where the trouble begins. I have the music so that if I wanted to play something of an artist who is towards the end of the list, I have to scroll through all along, that takes forever with this remote control (which I hate). I did find a work around. Do you have?

At first, I couldn't find the name of the artists, that would help a lot of filtering. I couldn't find a way to access some letters to speed up the selection.

If I accidentally leave the list of artists, then I find myself at the top of the list of return! It hurts...

Apple TV app on the iPhone is ridiculous. It is only a mirror of the Apple Remote hardware. There is no additional functionality for the collection of the artist or a song directly from there.

Please don't suggest using a mac or ios device to listen to my music, it's inpractical in my case. Apple TV should justify its price to pay by giving all round independent musicplaying service.

SO, what would be an EASY way to choose the songs or artist on the Apple TV?


Really don't know what you're doing, but I'm not all that hard.

First I will say that in general I just ask siri play an album that she does.

However there are times where I don't remember the names of all the albums, in such cases (let's go with the stones on this one), I dictate "Rolling Stones" in the search field, select it in the list that appears, and then switch the selection of Apple's music to my library, I have now www all my stones albums that I have in my library listed. If I don't want to dictate, and then usually by typing 'ROL' is sufficient to have "Rolling Stones" appears in the list.

  • How I rate songs in the details pane in Windows Media Player

    * Original title: how I rate songs in the details pane.

    When I click on the rating stars in the Details pane the star color is pale blue. The button does not meet the selected note. The help instructions are pretty useless. Trying to extract music from an audio cd it took me 45 minutes to find the rip button. I found out, the unit must first click. I would like to know how to use it, but as changed Windows operating system I could not keep pace. The instructions got more confusion. Help resources if you can?

  • How can I remotely control the music on the 4th generation Apple TV

    On the 3rd generation Apple TV, I could use the app Remote for artist, Albums, songs and playlists which was to play directly from the Apple TV remote. This allowed me to sit on the deck and set or change my playlist remotely while my Apple TV played on and on. I couldn't count on Airplay from my iPhone to the Apple TV because of being at the edge of my wireless connection. So I used the application to load a playlist on the Apple TV, which was always in range and connected to my stereo.

    With the 4th generation, I can't find an option to load remote a playlist, artist, album, or song. I can only handle what has been loaded using the physical remote control and a TV screen that beats my goal. I bought the 4th generation, because the 3rd generation could not access my subscription of Apple's music while the 4th generation can.

    Am I missing something or is the 4th generation Apple TV / Remote app missed something?

    Make sure that your Remote application is up-to-date. The current release is 4.2.3 and fully supports the music playback controls.

  • Apple TV remote turns on randomly 4th Gen Apple TV

    Hi guys,.

    I have a 4th gen Apple TV for Christmas at work. It's pretty convenient, but it's a very weird thing: the remote control sends signals randomly when nobody is in contact with it, in fact, nobody is there, everyone is metres from the remote control. Since Apple TV is connected to my TV which is capable of HDMI-CEC, it also turns on the TV. Sometimes without any model, when we sit in the corner opposite of the same room, or at random times of the day or even at night. Sometimes I go out in the middle of the night to check on our little girl and I see that the TV is on. Apple TV will switch to standby after a certain time, but since it does not send SIGNAL to the TV via CEC, the TV stays on. Sometimes I stop the movie I'm watching something and when I come back, film runs and minutes. This causes me a real headache, not to mention that it also adds the power bills, especially when we leave for a weekend and I come home that the TV is on...

    Did any of you ever heard, or it's a faulty remote with a contact problem around the buttons that need to be replaced? If the first case, how can I fix this, if the latter, will change any Apple retailer for me? There is no Apple store dedicated to Christchurch, New Zealand. My employer has ordered hundreds of Apple TV Online.

    Thank you


    I don't have to assume that someone else uses one of the old silver remotes close to Apple TV or if someone could play a joke on you with a distance more or the Apple remote on their phone app.

    There was a small number of reports related to the buttons on the remote apparently stick and sending several times the same command, but I don't think I've seen all the reports to work intermittently on his own.

    I've seen reports where network activity has awoken from previous models, but never where this kind of activity began a movie plays when he suspended.

    I think that a good start in the resolution of what is going on here is to know if these red orders arrive via bluetooth, IR, or wifi, you could start by covering the unit to the rule (or in) re.

  • 4th gen Apple tv doesn't remember connection

    I bought a 4th gen Apple tv to replace my 2nd generation it about 3 months ago. My girlfriend and I have a id iTunes and one account and both are set up on the new Apple TV. On the older, we could switch between his ID and mine, based on content, we wanted to see (each of buy us our TV shows or movies). With the 4th gen ATV, it requires the password whenever we change my account to hers, and vice versa. How can I configure the ATV to remember (not required) our passwords each time we have ID?

    Maybe it's not possible, see Family sharing might work, but their 'parent' allows you to pay for everything.

  • With FaceTime on the (4th gen) iPad slow after iOS 9.1 update


    People I called on Facetime on my iPad (4th gen) told me that I seem to be slow when I call them.  This happened after I upgraded my iOS to 9.1 (B 13, 143), and there is no more updates available for my iPad so I can't fix this "bug".

    I am convinced that it is a "bug" that I see the person I call clearly and smoothly, even if they can't see me gently.  I then unplug my call and then call the person using once again to start Facetime on my iPhone 5 (with the same version of iOS - 9.1 (B 13, 143)) using exactly the same wifi connection in the same place.  The person I call then confirms that he or she can see me clearly and smoothly.

    It is a problem, I need to resolve ASAP because I use Facetime for my meetings and it can be difficult to use my iPhone for long periods of time.

    I tested this question several times over several weeks - the problem remains still and I need this problem.  I can not connect a call without having to pay for an incident - and I think that it's a software problem and not a problem for the end user.

    Someone of another encounter the same problem and if someone has solved this problem?  Thank you.

    Update iOS 9.2 seems to have solved this problem, even if nothing in the report of the correction of a bug that appear to be associated with FaceTime.

  • How to select all of the people who are not in any team?


    I have a nice SQL expression that gives me accordingly all the "AGENTS" (people) working in a TEAM (a team)

    Now, how to select all the agents who do NOT work in any 'TEAM' (team)?

    I tried but could not succeed!

    Thank you for your help.


    Dave solutions use an outer join ((+) in the joints), which should bring back all the records of the agent, even if they do not exist in the equipe_agents table.

    Another approach would be to use a statement NOT EXISTS or NOT IN, for example

    SELECT   *
    FROM     agents a
                           FROM     equipe_agents ea
                           WHERE    ea.agent_id = a.agent_id
  • 4th gen Apple TV cannot pair with iphone remote app

    Click on 'Add Apple TV' selected on TV, then was invited to enter the 4 numbers matching password shown on television. However the TV shows 4 blocks of gray rectangle instead of 4 digits.

    I also checked that the apple TV and iphone are on the last OS update. What gives? This app is supposed to work with 4th gen now.

    Yes, it works. This looks like some weird glitch. Using the new application ATV 4 remote control (black), or the older version, now called iTunes remotely? Try restarting the ATV using the settings > system > restart. Then try to pair it again.
