I recently bought an iPod dock along with an iPod Nano and the dock came with an Apple Remote. I was wondering, what products out there can i purchase that will interface with USB and the Apple Remote properly and is it small enough that i can mod it to sit somewhere internally in my G4?
This may have already been answered in a different thread, but hunting through thousands of posts would take up alot of time.
I have pulled the IR boards from iMacs (with the cables) and wired them to USB connectors. They are plug and play with Leopard. Surprised no-one has released a third party plug and play one. Unless they have and I just don't know about it.
Check out a program called mira. http://twistedmelon.com/mira Its the third party plug in solution that War was speculating about. The dongle they sell is usb but could be mounted internally. War's solution would be much smaller and more elegant, but also more work. Good luck.
