Hi, just a friendly warning to those of us in the Apple Beta program. Do not update to 11.3. There are strange issues with control via remote from dropping connections, to loss of control when in an app, to keyboards not working. There is a note in the update log that says “Restrict Remote app connections to specified iOS devices.”. I’m not sure if this is the root cause but it appears to be affecting the stock Apple iOS TV remote as well. Unpairing/repairing the remote in Simple Control does not help.
This is the first time I have had serious issues on a tvOS beta. I had upgraded hoping for a fix for the washed out colors on the menu in HDR mode but ended up with a bag of hurt, Unfortunately since I have a 4k model (without a USB connection) there isn’t a way for me to downgrade at this time.
Others have commented on similar issues (outside of simple control) https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/apple-tv-11-3-beta-1.2102671/
If anyone has a suggestion I’d love to hear it. Currently running Simple Control 5 in Legacy remote mode.
