    I've recently received my refurbished March 2009 Mac Mini. I want to use it as a media center and have an harmony remote that I would like to use to control it (mostly for boxee).

    My problem is that I can't seem to find a way to pair my remote with it. Let me explain.

    So I launched Logitech Harmony Remote Software and added a new device, the Apple Mac Mini. I then updated my remote and finally updated my remote.

    Now, I have a macbook pro and a mac mini. Without pairing anything, I can effectively control the sound on my macbook pro, but not on my Mac Mini. Yes I've checked in the system pref in both machines, nothing is paired and I do not have a real apple remote.

    If I use the pair function, it does pair with my macbook pro and keep controlling it and still does nothing on the mac mini (expected).

    If I unpair it then close my macbook pro and use the pair function near my mac mini, it still do not want to pair.

    My question is, aside from bringing it to the apple store to get it checked, is there a way to test if my IR port is working on my mac mini?

    Or do you guys have any clever ideas?

    Thank you for your time.

    Sorry to have disturbed you, after installing candelaIR, it seems to work now!
