I lost my remote to my apple tv, how do I connect with my iphone if the wifi settings are not properly set?
You can't. You will have to purchase a new remote
go to app store get "remote" I have it on my 5 and it is easier than the origional.
The OP is trying to connect using the app, which needs home-sharing enabled and to be on the same network. To set that up you need the remote.
