Ditto is compatible with Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, Apple TV 3 and Apple TV 2.

How to Set Up Apple TV 4K/Apple TV HD as a Ditto Receiver 

Step 1

Download the Ditto tvOS Receiver app from the App Store on your Apple TV.

Step 2

Open the Ditto tvOS Receiver app. You will see a pairing code.

Step 3

Log in to your Ditto Account Portal, click on the "Receivers" tab and click "New Receiver" (or “Add Your First Receiver” if you haven’t added a receiver yet).

Step 4

Enter the pairing code displayed on the Apple TV and click "Pair Receiver."

Note: If you have not previously added a receiver to your Ditto account, you will have to first select "Apple TV 4/4K" before entering the pairing code.

Step 5

That's it! Your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD will be paired to your Ditto account as a receiver. Next, add the receiver to a room. Learn how to set up rooms.

Note: You may create as many receivers as you want. You are not billed until you pair a room to a receiver to create an “active” room.

How to Set Up Apple TV 3/Apple TV2 as a Ditto Receiver

There are two ways to add an Apple TV as a Ditto receiver. You can use the Ditto configuration utility or add the Apple TV manually.

Option 1: Use the Ditto Configuration Utility

Use the Ditto configuration tool to add an Apple TV 3 or Apple TV 2 to your Ditto account. This tool automatically detects available receivers on your network.

Option 2: Manually add Apple TV receiver

Note

If you choose to manually add an Apple TV through your Ditto account portal, you will need the IP address and the MAC address. This information can be found on the Apple TV "About" screen.

Step 1 - Gather Apple TV network Information

To locate the IP address and MAC address for your Apple TV, choose Settings -> General -> About.

The IP address and MAC address will be listed on this screen. Note, Apple TV refers to the MAC address as "Wi-Fi Address" or "Ethernet Address."

We recommend setting a static IP address for your device to prevent unwanted IP address changes. 

Step 2

Log in to your Ditto account and navigate to the Receivers section.

Step 3

Click “New Receiver” (or “Add Your First Receiver” if you haven’t added a receiver yet). 

Step 4

Click on Apple TV 3/2 

Note: If you have previously set up a receiver in your account, you will need to click "I don't have a code" first.

Step 4

  1. Enter receiver name. You can make this whatever you want, but it should be identifiable, such as "Apple TV 3" or "Conference Display."
  2. Enter the network information you gathered in Step 1 and click "Pair Receiver."
  3. Add this receiver to a room. This is how you make a room “active.” Learn how to set up rooms.
    Note: You may create as many receivers as you want. You are not billed until you pair a room to a receiver to create an “active” room.

Once you pair a receiver to a room, you're ready to connect to the room or create connection instructions for your users!
