Apple remote Mac-mini


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Has anybody been successful in using Apples IR remote with a Mac mini?

I'm using a Mac mini as my main server as there has been too many recorded tv problems on my old WMC. 

The wife needs a simple (read tv style remote) to operate.


Any suggestions would help.

Thanks for the reply.

The Apple remote is an infra-red device and the same device used for the Apple TV which is integrated directly with the OS.

 I'm not sure if they are regular or not.
