DMP and Apple TV Remote Guide


The Play extension comes with two remote control templates out-of-the-box. These default templates were created for the Digital Media Player (DMP) remote control and Apple TV remote control. It should be noted that the Play extension is not limited to only these two types of remotes for interacting with your devices. This guide is a quick overview of the various buttons and the top-level functions in which they are mapped to for each remote control.
