If you have an Apple TV these are some simple tips and tricks that you should know about. The following tips come from a Reddit post which can be found here.

Tip #1: Holding down the menu button will get you back to the main menu a lot faster than repeatedly clicking it.

Tip #2: Holding up during playback will show info about the video.

Tip #3: Holding select while viewing a video gives you audio options, like closed captioning.

Tip #4: In Netflix, press “play” on the episode in the summary episode-list page to play it directly.

Tip #5: Holding the play/pause button will turn off the Apple TV when on any app at the main menu.

Tip #6: Holding select while on an app tile allows you to rearrange them.

Tip #7: AirPlay Mirroring works a lot better from OS X 10.9 Mavericks than it did on 10.8.

    Tip # 9: Troll an iPhone blog like a tool thinking it was funny.

    Seriously though, I have had a bunch a different media extenders, nothing matches the content of iTunes. To say otherwise either means you’re trolling or uninformed.

    I thought your comment was funny. I’m hoping you’re right about Roku 3 as I received one for Christmas. Thought about Apple TV but any tech reviews I’ve read have ranked Roku usually their top choice with Apple TV a very close second.

    Most folk I encounter are still unaware the Apple TV has Bluetooth and will work with most keyboards.

    For some reason, it will not work with the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (v1.0). #Justsaying
