Remote problem after installing USB drive support

I installed the USB hard drive support and now the remote doesn’t function.
The ATV sees it and respond with change of light when i press a button but no change in the menu

Any ideas?

Did you restart the Apple TV after running through the smart installer?

I have the same issue and the exact same circumstances. I installed the USB drive support and now none of my IR remotes will function. I can navigate using the Remote iPhone app (of course only using the none aTV Flash features). Since the remote isn’t functioning, I don’t have any way to restore either…do I? Need help on this one quickly!

Found the solution for this one. Seems if you pair your remote with the AppleTV (as I had done), the USB drive patch disables the remote for some strange reason. To correct the problems, simply un-pair the remote from the AppleTV by pointing the remote at the AppleTV and then pressing and holding the menu button and the |<< button for a few seconds. The un-pairing icon will appear on the screen and all will be fixed.

That did the trick for me. Thank you Doctor!

Thanks Steven. We weren’t aware of that.
