Controlling iTunes with the Apple iPod Remote

I received the Apple iPod Remote thinking I could control iTunes with it, but apparently that is not how it works. It's nice that I can control slideshows on my TV, but I would really like to control iTunes playback with the Remote. Is there an app or utility that will allow me to do this? Thanks in advance!

no, it won't work unless you get an iMac with Front Row... it's an iPod controller only...

Bah! o_O Oh well, at least I can control my iPod's slowshows on a TV. We're having company over today, so I'll be able to try it out.

If Apple ever releases Front Row to non-iMac owners, then I'll be sure to use my Remote for that too.

Thanks!
