I just got the Rowmote App for my IP thinking it worked from the get-go with my Apple TV. No such luck. It did pair with my MB very quickly. However, I have absolutely no need to have it work with my MB and only paired it for a test. I NEVER connect my MB to my Apple TV.

So, to the crux of my problem. After doing some research, it seems that I have to "hack" my AT in order for the IP to pair with the AT for the Rowmote to work. Is this correct? If so, it kind of torques me off that iTunes didn't point that out on the App page where Rowmote is purchased. Looks like I'm out a buck.

    why didn't you just download the FREE remote app that apple supplies.
    it's called "remote".

    i should also add that after viewing the app in the store, it clearly DOES state that the installation of a "hack" is required for it to work.

    i'm surprised that apple have allowed this app on to the store, as the use of it requires you to hack the appletv.

    I'm the developer of Rowmote.

    I'm sorry to hear that there was some confusion with the requirements of using Rowmote on your Apple TV. As Chenks noted, I do try my best, in multiple places in the App Store description, to make the need for a hack clear (it's noted first in the 'works with' section and then again in the 'requirements' section). The instructions are available for free before purchasing at www.rowmote.com.

    All that said, I've certainly made impulse purchases myself, and I think there is no reason for you to have paid for a program you're not using. Macaby, if you'll contact me directly via email (you can find my contact information from rowmote.com) I will be more than happy to send you a full refund (including the 30% which Apple takes and which I am unable to get back).
