“Paring” Your Apple Laptop Remote

July 17, 2006 at 9:50 am (All Things Apple)

Can another Apple Laptop remote control your new laptop ? Yes, unless you “lock” in your remote. You can “pair” your remote with your Mac so that only your remote will work with it. The way to do this is to point the remote about 3 inches away from the Apple logo on the front of your Mac (or for the Macbooks the infra-red receiver) and then press and hold the Menu and Next/Fast-forward buttons simultaneously on the remote for 5 seconds. Want your remote to do more ? Try this.
