i have a bit of a chicken and egg problem.  i had to do a restore for my apple tv, now when i plug it in, it shows the screen where i have to select the language (and then i imagine go through all the setup stuff all over again).  problem is that i've lost my apple remote.  so i downloaded the remote app, but it cannot find the apple tv, and i am guessing coz the apple tv hasn't been set up yet and is not connected to the wifi network yet.  am i correct?  and if so, is there any way to use my apple tv ever again?  (buying a new remote won't work, coz it needs to be paired with the apple tv, and since i can't get to that screen that's gonna be impossible!)

iPhone 5, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
