Apple TV4 Keyboard

I'd like to move the Keyboard location in tv Scenes for using the AppleTV. The keyboard seems fixed to a location down the lefthand side. I'd like to move it to any of the four corners. But, to do that, I'd need to first remove it, then add it back to a new location. But, it is not removable. Nor is it listed among the widgets for me to place. I hope that's clear...

  • Hi Art Shotwell to be able to add a keyboard again you will need to have a 3x3 space available on Smart Remote interface, that may be why you are not getting in as an option. When you say it's not removable, do you get any error message when trying to remove it?

  • I'm talking about the Apple TV4 keyboard which is horizontal on a second screen. But, is taking a 1x1 space on as first screen.

    • Art Shotwell thanks a lot for sharing this. Let us take a look at this and see why you can't move it. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.

  • No hurry... but, maybe you can see what I'm doing in this 'scene' control for my Apple TV. If I could move the Keyboard widget to upper right corner (or lower right corner), I'd be able to move up the entire bottom string of widgets which control video play/pause and back and forward jumps.

    • Art Shotwell thanks for sharing this. You won't be able to move the keyboard button for now, but I made sure to share this request with our team so they can work on this!

  • Thanks for that. I'll get by...

  • I solved this... Finally... I realized that I could create a new page without the AppleTV Keyboard widget on it. Load up all my buttons, then hide the original page that had the Keyboard link on it. I can still access the AppleTV Keyboard by turning the Smart Remote sideways and it pops up. Guess it takes me awhile longer to do things as I get older.

    • Art Shotwell thanks a lot for sharing this, we are glad that you were able to find a solution for this!
