AppleTV can be controlled via IP or IR controls. IP control is recommended, and is selected by default. Note: in order to use IP control, Control Center must be on the same network as your AppleTV.
Control Center can detect the follow activities on AppleTV:
- A new Airplay session is initiated on AppleTV
- Bluetooth remote operation
- IR remote operation
- Using "Remote" app on iphone/ipad
If Auto Switching for AppleTV is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Control Center will turn on and switch sources to AppleTV automatically.
Control Center can perform basic controls with AppleTV through either IR or IP controls. Apple TV keys are mapped to the following Control Center buttons:
|Swiping on touchpad (latest Apple TV)||n/a|
|Microphone||note: activates Caavo voice commands -- not Siri|
|Volume Up||+ Volume Up|
|Volume Down||- Volume Down|
Deep Linking on AppleTV requires installing the Caavo Companion app on your device. On your AppleTV, navigate to the App Store, and search for "Caavo", and install the Caavo Companion app. Once the app is installed, move it to the top left row on your AppleTV using your AppleTV remote, and you're good to go!
NOTE: Deep Linking only works on AppleTV 4 and newer. This is because older versions of AppleTV do not allow users to install 3rd-party apps.
NOTE: When you power down your Control Center, your AppleTV may detect the change via HDMI. This can sometimes pull your AppleTV out of standby mode, turning on the light on the front. After a few minutes, AppleTV will go back into standby mode.
