Christmas is over and some of you may now be looking for the right way to set up the Apple TV Box, pair devices with it and maybe switch between the connected audio devices. When it comes to bluetooth headphones, there are one or two practical tips and tricks. With these you can connect Bluetooth headphones to the Apple TV faster or switch the output sources - from speakers to headphones or vice versa.
The Apple TV Box is now also available for 4K content and even the Apple Prime Video app can now be used on the device. Therefore, one or the other will probably spend longer time in front of the television. So that the family, roommates or partner are not disturbed, the Apple TV Box also serves as an interface between Bluetooth headphones and the television. A big help, as not many TVs can be connected to Bluetooth headphones. But what's the fastest way and how do I switch between different headphones via Apple TV? If you have these questions, here are the answers ...
In order to quickly and easily pair Bluetooth headphones that are nearby and switched on with the Apple TV, you of course have to call up the menu of the streaming box. There you follow this path to pair the headphones (or Bluetooth controllers) you want:
Settings -> Remote control and devices -> Bluetooth
If you have connected several devices wirelessly with the Apple TV as a streaming box and app provider on the Smart TV and want to switch between them quickly and easily, you can do this using the remote control. That too Siri Remote The called remote control has the Play / Pause button at the bottom left - press this until the menu with the output devices appears. There you can now switch from speakers and speakers to headphones and back. So if roommates or family come home or leave the apartment, then you are prepared for it with this little trick.
If you want to individually control various incoming commands on the Apple TV or on the Mac or MacBook in addition to the audio output, then a gaming controller could be useful for you. For example, you can use a PlayStation 4 controller with your Mac, iMac or MacBook via Bluetooth. For example, the Nimbus from SteelSeries can be used for the Apple TV streaming box and its apps / games. You can find details on this in this post. With regard to the Smart TV, pay particular attention to the information in the comments! Or you can take a look right here: Which game controller works on the Apple TV 4K (4th generation)?
