    I know that you can use iMovie HD to record videos using the iSight, but i was just wondering is there a way to start recording through the apple remote instead of clicking on the record button?

    I don't think there is. But if you have a wireless mouse, you could position the arrow over the record button and push the mouse button and it would be almost as good.

    The light on the iSight is a 'peace of mind' feature. It's there to let you know, that the camera is in use, and someone could be watching you...

    But if there is a way to disable it, I haven't come across it.

    Have you tried a small piece of silver duct tape?

    You can use Quicktime to record videos using iSight. It's not iMovie but at least you can record and then import into iMovie.

    There's also a program that allows you to customise the buttons on your Apple Remote. I forget what it is called, but I'm sure you can set it to start recording using Quicktime, then stop recording.

    you might be able to with a program called Remote Buddy. you can customize your remote to control any program almost any way you want. Great for controlling Powerpoint presentations at a distance. You can even use your remote as a mouse and launch apps. It's only $10 and quite robust. If I had my macbook pro with me I'd confirm this for you, but you can try it out for yourself free.
