    So my ATV 3 arrived today and the remote for it ALSO controls/affects the volume on my wife's 21.5" iMac. Any way to turn off remote controls on the iMac? Besides this problem a nice unit. Thanks for any help.

    System Preferences > Security > General tab and check the box Disable remote control infrared receiver.

    Thanks! Good thing we don't use a remote on the iMac or this would not solve the problem.

    Have you tried unpairing it from the iMac?
