I recently purchased an Apple TV 4K (5th Generation) to enable me to run Zwift on my 42" TV.
The remote for the Apple TV is terrible and its really difficult to navigate around Zwift using it.
Therefore, to over come this I purchased a Bluetooth keyboard (Arteck HB086) and connected this to my Apple TV so I could use this instead of the terrible Apple remote.
The keyboard connects with the Apple TV perfectly and it recognises all of the buttons on the keyboard and I am able to navigate around the Apple menu’s using the arrow keys and use the letter keys to write text etc. However, when I open up Zwift the only buttons on the keyboard that work on Zwift are the escape and return key.
I have raised this with Zwift and this is there response;
Thanks for your message.
This is a normal experience for anyone using a remote keyboard with Apple TV and Zwift. The Zwift control keys do not work with it and there are no plans that I am aware of to build this feature into the Apple TV release of updates.
You may want to add to this post or add another post in the feature requests section of the Zwift Forum. If enough people vote for this then Zwift may consider developing it.
I am not a Zwift employee in this role so have no influence on this!
Hope this helps answer your question.
