Although Apple TV 3, ATC2 and ATV 1 don’t have a volume control, there is a way to adjust how loud or low the sound is. In this simple and brief guide, you will find out how to control the sound level. The volume is controlled by your TV or receiver instead of Apple TV. You can use your TV or speaker remote to control the volume.
You can also rely on the iOS remote app to manage the volume on Apple TV, when you are steaming content on your iPad or iPhone. The easiest solution is to rely on Logitech’s Harmony Touch, a universal remote control that has settings for Apple TV. Although it has been discontinued, it is still possible to find it online. Apart from allowing you to adjust the volume, this universal remote control allows you to manage many other functions.
Your Apple TV (4th generation) should automatically detect the TV or receiver that you plug it into and program your Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote1 to control power and HDMI input.
Clear the path between your remote and the front of your television or receiver. Volume control normally works using the IR sensor2 on the front of your equipment.
If volume, power, or HDMI selection don’t automatically work for you, you might need to program your remote for volume or turn on HDMI-CEC on your TV or receiver.
The latest generation of Apple TV can detect the TV or receiver that you connect to it and you can use your Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote1 to manage the functionality, including power and HDMI input. Just make sure that the path in front of the TV or receiver is clear. Usually, the volume control works with the IR sensor2 in front of the equipment. Keep in mind that if you are unable to adjust the power, volume or HDMI selection, you may have to program the remote for volume or enable HDMI-CEC on the TV or receiver.
