    I rarely use the remote except for Front Row movies, and that's only around twice a year, so can it be used for use on the iPods? I know that it won't work by just clicking it or whatever, but is there something I can do to make them compatible?

    No, but you can use your ipod touch as a remote for your itunes or apple tv. Apple has a free app called Remote you can use for this, but you need Wifi to use it. However, I don't think there is a way to use the little remote that comes with the computer to access your ipod touch.

    I have found that you can only adjust volume up and down or skip to next or previous tracks. Also you cannot access the menu system to choose playlists, albums etc.

    Unless someone knows otherwise.
