This remote works even though my Apple TV is mounted behind my TV!!!! I am not sure why. It works just fine. They must have some sort of IR blaster. There is not even any delay. I bought this remote not realizing that it was IR only. I realized it only after I had ordered it. I thought I would have to move my streamer from behind the TV, but I thought I would give it a try anyway. It works just fine. So I disagree with the comments that say that this cannot be done. I don't guarantee it will work for everyone, but it does work just fine for me. The IR must reflect behind the TV somehow. I would not discount this remote, if you were longing for a button remote and you want your Apple TV mounted to the back.
I have had a G logo on my phone when I bought a top of the line Google phone (Pixel 2 XL). I would much rather have an Apple logo now. So, if you ask me, Apple easily wins in brand value. I spent top dollar and got junk with Google. I know that anything bearing an Apple logo is always the highest quality. ... Why I will be switching to Apple.
