    hey, i was wondering if you can sync the apple remote control to the ipod touch? I know i can sync my iPod touch with my MBP with the remote app and i have done so, but can you control your iPod touch with the Apple Remote Control?

    hey! if you get the new universal dock you'll be able to use the remote when the ipod is docked. Works with my ipod touch, havent used it with any other ipods but i cant see why it wouldnt work. The remote wont work directly with iPod touch as im pretty sure im right in saying there is no IR receiver built in to the touch itself. Im sure if im wrong, someone will come and say so.

    I'd like to hop on to this thread myself. Can I connect one of the apple remotes I got with my mac to the universal dock? Or is there a remote already included?

    Your existing remote will work; not sure if there's one included with the dock though.

    Apple remote works, with bugs

    I am using iPod Touch with an older dock+remote, and it works just the same... with a bug: when using iPod Touch in the dock, the remote's "Play" and "Next" buttons automatically open "Videos" on the iPod. I haven't been able to use the remote to change to the next photo in the album.
