I have a Macbook Pro, a dock and a Apple TV

When I press the remote when Im watching TV something happens om my computer - maybe it starts to play music

Same when I listen to music on the dock - afterwords I dont know where I am, when I open the Apple TV (certainly not where I was last I watched an episode of some series)


Is there any way I can control one unit at the time?

I have a remote for the dock, one for the TV, and none for the computer

Thats fine

Only I want them to only control the units they are supposed to


Can it be done?




Apple TV, iOS 6.0.1, Old dock
