Apple TV remote select button not working – MacRumors

Hi Guys,

The “select” button of My Apple TV 4K (2nd generation) remote has recently changed its behaviour. Instead of selecting the item it acts the same way as the left button and it moves the selection to the left. I have done all the troubleshooting such as software updates, factory resets, pair/unpair, battery charge, etc but nothing helps. All the other buttons work as expected.

I have to note that the Apple tv has been sitting on top of my wifi router and i suspect it has some connection. If i use the remote on the iphone – it selects fine.

Do you think a new remote would fix the issue or do i need to buy a new apple tv?

many thanks
