    I have my old 13" MacBook running Lion connected to my TV using an Hdmi adapter. I use XBMC to play movies. XBMC is opened at login. I control XBMC using an Apple remote. Works very well except that from time to time the remote opens iTunes and/or acts as a volume control. I prefer to use remote over a wireless mouse.

    How can I prevent the remote opening iTunes or changing the volume? I want the remote to only navigate the menus in XBMC . I tried deleting iTunes but the Os would not let me do that.

    Thanks

    Thanks. I will check it out.

    Not 100% sure yet but it seems to depend on whether or not the TV is on before or after I startup the MacBook.
