Well, the light on the Apple TV blinks when I press the button on the
remote, so the Apple TV is receiving a signal from the remote.
Further, the same problem exists with my Harmony remote as well as the
Apple remote, so I doubt that it is a battery issue.

My wireless works with everything else, and the problem suddenly
developed about a week ago with no changes to the WiFi setup. And, as
I said, the Apple TV still works with AirPlay, so it's getting the WiFi
signal with no problem.
