I have Apple TV (3rd gen) and want to be able to control it with my U-verse remote. My remote is the black S10-S3 model.
I programmed the U-Verse remote AUX button with code 5028. Can turn the Apple TV on, all functions work, UP Down Left Right OK Menu Pause-Forward, but cannot turn the Apple TV off.
Using the Apple remote pressing the Pause-Forward button for a few seconds shuts the Apple TV off, but no combo I can find on the U-Verse romote will accomplish this. I've set the Apple TV to auto shutoff after 15 minites of inactivity so the answer isn't critical as the Apple TV will turn off on its own but I'd just like to have control of the situation.
Does anyone use a key combo or a different code to accomplish the shuttofff ?

Also, I am confused what the sequence is - I first thought there are two buttons = Pause & forward. If pressed in order they will shut down the Apple TV. If the two buttons work individually the sequence should also work. That would be a function of the receiver, not the remote.
But, if you mean simultaneous press, I would not expect that to work on any remote except Apple. That requires a stretch in basic function.
Apple always has to be different LOL.
There is no Power button, simply press any key and Apple TV turns on.
The Pause-Forward is one key, same as when watching live U-Verse TV, press Pause once to stop, press Pause again to resume.

I either just leave it on (goes to sleep based on sleep time setting), or use the sleep now selection in menu.

5028 no longer works with Apple TV 3rd Gen. 5170 seems to work with U-verse remote S10-S4.
