Due to the fact we will no longer be able to have DirecTV starting next year (HOA installing new roofs and decreeing that no dishes can be mounted on the roof anymore), Katie and I have been researching new means by which to consume visual entertainment.
Part of our research involved wanting to finally try out AppleTV and seeing what it’s all about. Turns out one of my coworkers just bought an AppleTV v4 and had a v2 collecting dust at home. So he hard reset it and gave it to me.
We hooked it up today and that part was way easy. Scary easy.
Connecting my iTunes account, though? What a pain the ass.
I punched in my account and password three times before realizing that the reason I wasn’t receiving the account passcode verification was because it was going to nathan’s iPad instead of my iPhone and he was actively using his iPad and swiping away the notifications. So then I tried six more times and the ATV wouldn’t accept the password/passcode combo. I nearly gave up.
I decided to try one more time and it finally took. Thank god.
We went out and bought a new ATV remote at Best Buy (that’s the one thing my coworker could not find so I borrowed one from someone else). And now we’re firing on all cylinders.
At least until we change our internet provider. When that happens, all the shit on which we’ll have to update connections is gonna be astounding. And painful. Oy.
