Help! Stuck in setting up my Apple TV after selecting the wrong language

tvOS & Apple TV Apps

Hi all. I finaly got things hooked up, but I selected Spanish by accident. i'm stuck on the setup where I can use the device or set up manually. Is there a way in heaven to get the thing to go back one? without unplugging it? Thanks for any help.

When this happened to me a rep from the accessibility team at apple tried to help me but I didn't know the language enough to know where I was. What I had to do is get the special USB cable (I forget what kind of cable it uses) and restore from ITunes either that or you can take your device to apple and have them restore it for you. I guess another option would be if you know someone that speaks Spanish they can come and help you.

Hi Troy thanks for the help. I realy think apple should hit a back button so you can go back on damn screen. Ugh, sorry for the four letter word but it totally drives me bonkers. Anyway i'm starting to set it up manually, because I couldn't get the device set up to work, and it is stuck on a password field. I can wait to restore it,it just makes me crazy, that I clicked one to many. Does anyone kow what password field this might be on? I tried my apple ID and network paswords, no dice on either of them. Thanks guys.

Hi all. Somehow by saying a lot of prayers, I got it set up. Now I can't find where to change the language back to english. I don't know if I set the contry the united states or not, but every thing I can find I don't see the language setting. I don't even find the restore on the system settings tab. ugh, what tech god did I anger for this? lmao
