I had to buy the new $60 AppleTV remote, because Logitech has stopped supporting their Harmony remotes [1], and the volume and mute button no longer work, and HBOMax has adopted the (former) Netflix strategy of being as obnoxious as fuck. Of course I want to hear the tag music from whatever show they’re pushing this week that I scrolled past because I didn’t want to watch and am searching through the Criterion Channel to find something good to watch!

Of course it was stupid that the first AppleTV remote, which was otherwise fine, didn’t have a mute button. It’s also stupid that the AppleTV, which claims it can learn a different remote, actually can’t.

[1] Seriously, fuck Logitech, and their horrible Apple support.
