Hi , I`m Jack , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.
You did not give me the tv`s model number but either directly on it or its remote there should be a button called INPUT or SOURCE , with the apple tv box turned on press that button a few times to go through the inputs until the tv gets to hdmi 2
