Usually apple verification codes are only 6 digits, what exactly does it say the code is or what it is for?

This is not asking for an apple verification code it is asking for an Apple TV code
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it is 8 digits apparently and it is not on the Apple TV box
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have the serial number if that helps
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

So the window just says "Apple TV code" with 8 empty boxes ready for you to type. No the serial will not be needed. Something is not added up, and if there are no more details on this code window, what triggers this window to come up. You mentioned after clicking on a movie?

They say an 8 digit code is necessary to authorize a device
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
We are streaming a movie on the computer and want to send it to a larger screen via apple tv
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

Right, if this is a mac computer you would just need to airplay to the TV which requires no code. So is it the computer that is asking for this code or the apple tv. I have used apple tv forever and something is just not making since. I know what your trying to do which is not the problem. I am just confused on what is asking for a 8 digit code and why.

Are you still there?
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

OK, let me check this out one moment. That is why I am not sure of this code before because its not an Apple Code it is more that this website once a code to give you rights to do so. So I will need to research this one sec.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
