    It has been reported on MacRumors that while streaming music from your Mac to your :apple:TV via iTunes, you can control the playback (play/pause, skip) with your :apple:TV remote.

    I suspect that those able to do this are using an unpaired remote which is in fact controlling their Mac and not their :apple:TV.

    I'm streaming music from iTunes on my Mac to my :apple:TV and the remote doesn't control the playback at all.

    Make sure "Allow iTunes control from remote speakers" is checked in iTunes Preferences (under Advanced.) Seems to be a delay of a few seconds between pressing play/pause on the Apple Remote and iTunes responding, but it's working here (and my remote is paired to the AppleTV).

    This deffinitely works. DIscovered this 2 nights ago. Been using Airtunes for a few years and thought about that setting right away and gave it a try.
