For a while, it looked like tvOS15 had ruined everything for Crestron IP control of the Apple TV.

We didn't want to let down the hundreds of customers who have supported Ultamation's development over the years through DACP and Home Sharing, Media Remote and now - Companion Protocol!

We've burned the midnight oil, writing (literally) over 100 unit tests, refactored existing and developed new code, and the result is a brand new collection of modules for Custom Crestron AND Crestron Home which provide IP navigation of Apple TV and, finally, the holy grail - direct app launching!

Not only that, but we've completely rewritten the commissioning tool to make setup of the Apple TV pairing and licencing as simple and trouble-free as possible.

For answers to frequently asked questions and migrating from MediaRemote to Companion please read Companion FAQ - requires a login.

The App Launcher REQUIRES the Apple TV module to be configured on the Crestron Home system.

Apple TV Gen 4 and above only.

NOTE: Please refer to the FAQ for the latest exciting news on Crestron firmware support.

NOTE: Some users have found it difficult to run the Licence Manager tool - we have created a "legacy" version that uses .Net Framework instead for these situations.  Please try this version if you have problems running the .Net 5 version.

PRIVACY: The module is 100% self contained and we do not pass any data out of the local network or require an Internet connection for operation.  The protocol implements all of the same encryption as Apple, right on the Crestron processor.

LICENCING: The module is licenced in the same way as all previous modules - one licence per Apple TV device.

NOTE: This product is in no way related to the CompanionLink synchronisation software (available from

List of the comments:
“Oh my god!!! How amazing is this driver!! It's about 5 times faster than IR. The direct app launching is a game changer. I can now hide my Apple TV remotes forever! The New Apple TV driver for Crestron Home emulates the Apple TV remote in the best possible way, it allows for press and hold so you can move app’s or delete them and also navigate the interface faster than IR when scrolling. You can also double click Guide which allows you to jump between open app’s like on your phone or close them by double tapping up.”
"I have had it running in my house for over a month on 2 Apple TV’s. It survived every reboot. It survived Apple TV OS from 14 to 15. Never slows down. Never sends too many commands."
