Support Remote Buddy FAQ Hardware - Apple Remote

My Mac has no built-in IR sensor. Is there any possibility to use an Apple Remote nonetheless?

Yes. Remote Buddy also supports IR receivers following the eHome 2005 standard. With the help of those, the Apple Remote can also be used with Remote Buddy on Macs without built-in IR receiver. Many of the popular Keyspan receivers are also supported by Remote Buddy and with its help allow you to use the Apple Remote with your Mac. You can find further information on the "Supported hardware" page as well as in a special feature on this topic linked to from the Remote Buddy overview page.
