    I am planning on purchasing AppleTV soon and was wondering if my TiVo remote can be programmed to run it?

    I would think not as the TiVo remotes are not universal remotes.

    See this article:

    www(dot)maclife(dot)com/article/howtos/take_control_your_apple_tv_your_universal_remote

    (I don't have enough posts to be allowed to post standard links.)

    Shows how to teach your Apple TV to use a standard remote by learning the keys you want to use to control the Apple TV.

    You might be able to switch the TiVo remote to dvr 2 and use that to control the Apple TV separately from the TiVo.

    If I try this later this week, I will post my results.

    I am curious, if you have an S3 why did you get the Apple TV? Don't they have essentially similar functions?
