Default getting an Apple Remote to work - 06-10-2009, 09:24 PM

Does anyone know of an USB IR adapter solution that would allow the Apple Remote to work with the Dell Mini 9 with Leopard? There are tons of USB IR adapters out there but I don't know if they will work.

I would like to use my mini as a media center (hooked up to my TV, a dvd player and external HD) when I'm not using it on trips. If anyone has tried to get the Apple remote to work, please let me know.

Try Mira a preference pane and their Manta USB IRda adapter.
