    I've done a search but can't seem to find the answer to what is a very basic/stupid question...

    I've got my Harmony Remote controlling my new ATV. However, its signals are also being picked up by the two Macbooks in the same room. Is there a way to stop them recognising the commands which are meant for ATV?

    Yes. You can pair your laptops with their own remotes, so that each one responds only to its own remote. Apple's website must have an entry on details.

    If you dont need to use the remotes with the macbooks, you can go into System Prefs>Security and disable the remote.

    Thanks. I must be searching with some wrong terms then!

    I've found out how to disable the IR receiver on each one, so that will do for now.
