    My iMac had a useful remote control thingy but the mac pro does not support it.

    Can anyone recommend a good alternative to the Apple Remote?

    VNC in the iPhone takes too long to connect. I also tried a Bluetooth mouse and that just didn't work very well.

    I had a similar problem getting Frontrow to work on an old G5 iMac.

    Solved it by getting a wireless remote - exact same features as the Apple IR one, but uses a USB RF thingy. I can't remember the brand. I'll try to get it for you when I get home tonight.
