Apple Tv remote losing connection

I've noticed this is happening in the channels app a lot. A notification will be displayed on the tv after a while that the connection was lost with the remote. Is this a channels issue or an apple issue? I haven't seen it outside the channels app that I can recall. Clicking a button on the remote does reconnect it and it has plenty of battery left but it is annoying.

We’ve never seen that nor had reports of it. Very weird.

Check to see if you have Shake to Mute turned on in the settings. Try turning it off to see if it helps.

I experience it regularly. I think it is on the Apple side where the remote Is going into some kind of sleep state after a period of inactivity. It is in the upper right hand corner and disappears quickly. Touching the remote resets the connection.

I’ll pay more intention in the future.

Thats a native feature. The remote goes to sleep to save its battery.

I guess you guys are just using Channels more and longer than other apps :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I would say probably at least 90% of the usage on my apple tv is channels. It's a great product!

Yep .. seen the popup many times on my Apple TV. Once you use the remote again it reconnects just fine.
