How can I control volume on my Apple TV Remote Instead of using the Yamaha remote? I have the Apple TV set to control remote. The volume adjust (scrolls on the tv as if it is going up/down numerically) but the volume doesn’t change. Is there a setting on the receiver? I have also rebooted the Apple TV Remote. It does control on/off the tv but not the receiver. Apple TV is plugged in to HDMI ARC. Tv is plugged into Apple TV with hdmi 4K cable. Thx!
