I just upgraded from tiger to snow leopard yesterday and today I tried to use apple remote on xbmc and it does not work. It was fine until yesterday, but now its not working. pressing the menu button brings up front row, but no action taken on xbmc.

The Apple Remote driver changed in Snow Leopard. You need to download and install Candelair to get it working again.

I solved my problem and I paired it by pressing both MENU and LEFT (backwards) button on the remote..
