    Anyone know if universal remotes work with Frontrow? They cost about $35.00 here in Canada but a universal is about $8.00.

    I have a logitech universal and it works fine,, had to copy the ir commands from my apple remote tho, which if you dont have you may get a little stuck, depends on what the remote your purchasing and if it's lucky enough to have the apple ir settings contained.

    Why not just pick up an apple remote for frontrow?

    The logitech's have the Macbook as a recognized device, you shouldn't have to use "learning" mode to use it.

    At least my Harmony 880 works just fine after adding the Macbook in the software.

    We don't have the best Apple supply in this town and what we do have is overpriced. (Which I didn't know they could do because I thought Apple prices were fixed.)

    Thanks for the info guys.

    I actually managed to find one in this town for the same price Apple lists it for on their web site. Problem salved.
