Join Yohann Taieb for an in-depth discussion in this video Set up Apple TV for Xcode, part of Converting iOS 9 Apps into Apple TV Apps.
- When you buy an Apple TV, all you get is the unit, the power supply, and the remote. You will need to purchase an HDMI cable to use it with your TV. If you want to use your Apple TV to develop through a computer, you will also need to purchase a USB C Cable. Depending on your computer, this could be a USB C to a USB C Cable, or a USB C to USB A Cable. I'll begin by connecting the Apple TV to the power outlet with the power cord and to the TV screen using the standard HDMI Cable.
When I power the Apple TV, it automatically turns on. On the back of the Apple TV, I plug in a USB C Cable and plug the USB A side into the my Mac. Then, I open X Code on my computer. In the Window Organizer, I see the name of my Apple TV, list it as a new device. I can now easily record live video of my app by opening Quick Time Player, and selecting New Movie Recording. Then, I can select the Apple TV as the Video Input, and record.
I'm now ready to use the Apple TV for development.
