    You do not need to purchase a remote.  I had similar problem, just find a way to solve it.

     

    - First, you need to have a Mac and a wireless keyboard in order to do this way.

    - You have to reset ATV to factory default first - you can use micro USB cable to connect ATV to a Mac and follow the process to restore factory default.

    - Then connect ATV back to TV, it will prompt you to use store setup process and give you a chance to pair ATV with a bluetooth wireless keyboard

    - Once the wireless keyboard is paired, you can follow the steps to set home sharing and remote app again
