I'm trying to use my Mac Mini in the living room as a media center. It's only purpose will be to stream video from NetFlix. However I don't want any keyboard or mouse to be attached. I want it to work with just a remote control. I was thinking of using FrontRow but the only plug-in I could find for NetFlix was called Understudy and that requires one to log in via a web browser (which means a keyboard is needed). If anyone knows of anything else that wouldn't require a keyboard and mouse, please let me know. So I was thinking of using Vista with Windows Media Center which is already setup on this Mac Mini. I got a Microsoft Remote Control and Receiver that works with Media Center from one of my PCs. Everything works great so far. I can open up MCE and navigate without any hassle. I can even turn off the Mac Mini. Here's the Remote Control and Receiver in question if it helps: http://www.google.com/products/cata...ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CAsQ8wIwAA#ps-sellers The problem I encounter is that I'm trying to power on the Mac Mini using the Remote Control as well, but it's not working. I don't know why that is. Is there any way to do this? Why would it not turn on with the Microsoft Remote Control? If it helps, this is the Mac Mini Core 2 Duo 1.83ghz that was released in August 07. It's running OS X 10.5 and Vista Ultimate in Boot Camp. I also have the Apple Remote that came with it (the original white plastic remote). I tried seeing if I could turn on the Mac Mini with the Apple Remote and that didn't work either. Any help is much appreciated.
