There's functionality built in to the remote which allows it to be paired with a specific device very easily. All it requires is some sort of button combination.

I read about it on iLounge, so I'm sure it's quite readily available in the manual.

Good luck!

According to this Apple KB article (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302545), you can pair the remote to a receiver, similar to how you pair bluetooth devices to one-another.
