I’m probably overlooking something, but I have a Harmony remote and use it to control my Apple TV, among other things. And everything works very well.
I’ve noticed that even if Apple TV is turned on, it doesn’t show as “playing” anything in the Home app – probably because it wasn’t turned on via the Apple TV remote.
Is there a way to avoid this? I like Apple TV to show me what’s playing – whether it’s Netflix or anything.
