I've just discovered the following key combinations on the Apple Remote:

Holding the Menu and << keys down

Unpair the remote. This will work from any Apple Remote so is particularly handy if you lose your remote. You can unpair the remote by holding the Menu and << keys down together until an unlock icon shows in the top left-hand corner of the screen

Holding the Menu and >> keys down

Pair the remote. Just a shortcut to pair the Apple Remote with the Apple TV

Holding the Menu and + keys down

This seems to minimize the main Apple Menu and bring up a menu to walk through the possible display resolutions including:

  1. 480p
  2. 576p - 50Hz
  3. 720p HD
  4. 1080i HD
  5. 720p HD - 60 Hz
  6. 1080i HD 50Hz
  7. (The current non-standard resolution if you've got one set through System Preferences)

The Apple TV will walk through each resolution (one every 10 seconds) until you either hit Menu (to exit), or use the On-Screen menu to select a specific resolution, hit OK, or Cancel.


Holding the Menu and - keys down

Restarts the Apple TV

Holding the play key down
