    I've had the Apple Remote for months now and have only used it once on our TV to display a slideshow. I would love to get more use out of this thing... are there any hacks that will allow me to use the remote on my Mac? I have the Universal Dock, so that's one thing out of the way. Thanks!

    Short answer: no
    Long answer: well, as far as I know, there isn't any.

    I know, I am late to the reply here, but I do not believe that any hacks will be possible for the Universal dock. As far as I can tell by doing a USB Probe, the system is unaware of it's existence when it is connected to the computer. It appears to simply pass through USB and Firewire data in the same way a cable would.
