The Apple Remote Controller that I use with it somehow also became paired with the MBP, so that when I would play music on the Apple TV, my iTunes on the computer would also start up and begin playing different tunes. Putting the Apple TV to sleep would not quit iTunes, so it would continue to play until I went to the computer to stop it. After finally figuring it out, I unpaired the controller from the computer so that now it remains safely quiet." MacInTouch 11:26 AM
