Essentailly I'd like to be able to use the Apple TV as a 'remote' to control the iTunes instance. Is this possible?
You can't use the tv to control the iTunes library but you can use the remote2 app.
In the remote2 app the very first screen selects the device you will control. There are icons of ATV for that device and there are blue circle iTunes icons for each shared music library. Choose the blue circle icon and that will control the iTunes library. This will play in both rooms. If you control the tv device, it will only control that device and iTunes will continue to play to your AE.
I have both an iPad and iPhone and your right, the Remote App does the job perfectly.
But sadly that wasn't what I was looking for. I'd like to control iTunes using the Apple TV Remote, because the iPad/iPhone are not always around.
Ideally, a 'Remote App' that runs on the Apple TV is what I'm looking for. Perhaps it will appear on the illusive Apple TV App Store.....?!?
