Hi guys!

I am thinking of trying out one of them USB plug in Infrared recievers (like the ones so you can transfer stuff from your pc to your mobile phone?) and the new apple remote to see if i can get it to work with frontrow? Has anyone tried this already? I am going to have a go today when I go shopping for the parts, I'll let you know how I get on,

Kerri

It would be interesting to see if it works.

Here's my gripe:

Why did Apple use an IR interface? They should have just made the remote Bluetooth.

Come on, Apple.

I haven't heard about anyone getting the Apple remote with dock to work. The Keyspan Express, Griffin Airclick, Logitech Harmony, or Salling clicker with a supported BT device will work. I'm just using a wireless keyboard.
