The Apple Remote is really useful at times when you want to watch / listen to something but don’t want to go near your computer. For me…I use it every time I have lunch in front of my iMac….I will sit far back with my lunch and use my remote controller (with the help of Front Row) to watch an episode of family guy 😀 But what if you have more than one Mac in your room / area? By default, Macs will work with any available remote, so how can we change that and pair our remote to one particular Mac only? Well, actually its very easy, and here is how:
tips: if you press the Next button before the Menu button, you have a smaller chance of activating Front Row.

Step 2. Click on the Unpair button to unpair your Apple Remote with your Mac.
