Problem, or setting?

Ok i just bought apple tv.

Im using the remote to navigate through the options and when i press the center button to select something my laptop will start playing an itunes song from my library (as if i were pressing the play button on itunes)

is this an option i can disable? whats the deal here!

i have a macbook pro 2011 model


ahh nevermind sorry guys, I was just informed about a issue long-going with macs and being universal with the remotes. i just disabled the IR on my MBP. thanks anyway guys!

Go to setting on your laptop and disable the infrared for the remote!

If you don't want to shut off the IR, say if you want to use another remote with the computer, you also have the option of unpairing the individual remote.
