    I am all of the sudden having problems with my Apple Remote not working. I have a Macbook and just updated to 10.5.5 and iTunes 8. I have checked that the infrared receptor isn't disabled, and just changed the battery in the remote control and know it's working (I can see the light flashing) but it still won't work with my Macbook! I can't even get it to pair. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be wrong or how to make it work? Please help! Thanks!!
