    Apologies for the specific set of criteria!

    When I Airplay music to Apple TV (4th gen) from my phone, I can use the siri remote or remote on my phone to skip tracks backwards and forwards. However, I can't for the life of me work out which command facilitates this in the Harmony commands. I've tried FastFoward, SkipForward and DirectionRight but none seem right, and they just seem to navigate the Apple TV menu instead.

    Is it perhaps because the track navigation buttons are Bluetooth commands and not available to IR?

    I believe the Apple TV 4 works over Bluetooth and IR, so it should work.

    But do you have an Apple TV activity set up? It may be that you’re pressing fast-forward etc but the Harmony isn’t set up to control your Apple TV.
