    Beovision to Mac Mini via Infrared Eye

    I currently have a Beovision 6 and a Mac Mini all connected nicely.  Unfortunately I currently still need to remote controls.  A couple of weeks ago I bought a Infrared Eye and had a PUK for Apple Remote installed.

    The Mac Mini Audio is connected to the Audio Input of BeoVision (which is on AV3).  The Mac Mini Video is connected via DVI Input of BeoVision.  I also set the PUK for Apple Remote on "DTV".  Unfortunately my Mac Mini does not react on commands by the Beo Remote Control and Infrared Eye.  Can anybody help?  Which further adjustments do I have to make in order to control my Mac Mini via the Beo Remote 4?

    Re: Beovision to Mac Mini via Infrared Eye

    What you are describing should do it. Have you checked that the Infrared extender is placed over the infrared eye on the mac? Its the black spot next to the DVD drive (not sure if that is right for the current 2010 model).

    Also it only work in software that supports the apple remote for example frontrow

    Many thanks for the quick reply...  I found two possible mistakes...  Firstly I was not aware of the fact that the IR Eye actually has to be that close (I always had it approx. 20 centimeters away)...  Secondly I have Remote Buddy installed and have to learn that program that a new Remote is used...  Now it works...  Not quite smoothly though...

    Left, right, up and down as well as middle work perfectly...  However I cannot find the "menu" button...  Which would be great when using Remote Buddy...

    Did you try EXIT?

    Stefan is right exit is the substitue for menu. Probably because you stille have to use the menu button on the TV for the setup menus
