I get how to set up a 3rd party remote, but how do I get the ATV to now stop working with the apple remote and only respond to the newly set up 3rd party remote?


See I have a macmini sitting next to the ATV which is controlled by an apple remote. I know I could pair each machine to their relative remotes, but being the remotes are identical in appearance I am hoping to use the ATV Learn feature to be able to control it from a 3rd party remote, and the Mini with the apple remote.


I had expected that once a 3rd party remote was set up, there would be an option to select which remote would be used.


Have I missed something?
