    What kind of iBook G4, and which OS revision? you don't have anything with an IR receiver plugged in, do you? The iBook G4 does not *have* IR built-in. And it oughtn't work with a BT remote unless it was paired first. But I don't even *have* the option you list on mine.

    Ahem, also, did you install Frontrow on this by any chance? :D

    Machts nichts to me. But FrontRow uses an IR remote. Get it? ;) That might be what causes you to have such an option in your System Preferences. :D When no one else does on their iBooks. :p
