Since I upgraded to Lion (they removed Front Row), it only controls iTunes - when I say it controls iTunes, I mean you can play a song or video that is already selected but you cannot change the selection. Additionally, you can control the volume; otherwise, it is useless now. …

Apple needs to post more specific product info.
This remote does not work with iMac models made after 2012. After being told it did by 3 different employees at the Apple store I This remote does not work with iMac models made after 2012. After being told it did by 3 different employees at the Apple store I purchased it, got it home, and then found out that Apple stopped adding the IR in the newer models of iMac. I have the OS X Yosemite and it does not have the Infrared Receiver. This should be posted by Apple in the Product specifics as they lead you to believe it works for iMac. …

Great while it worked...kinda...then died an early death
This remote came with the 3rd generation Apple TV I bought three years ago. It worked as expected for about a year, after which an This remote came with the 3rd generation Apple TV I bought three years ago. It worked as expected for about a year, after which an Apple TV update caused it to open iTunes on the iMac located in the same room, even after trying every imaginable combination of pairing and unpairing and restarting and resetting. Eventually I learned to hold the Apple TV remote near the floor on the far side of an ottoman.
Last week the remote's battery died, and since I replaced it the remote won't scroll down. The menu button works and it selects items (though that function seems balky) and scrolls up, right and left just fine, but it won't scroll down--or, I should say, it will scroll down jerkily one time out of several dozen presses.
Now I know people will wonder why I don't use the iOS app, but it's a pain to have to turn on my iPod Touch and unlock it before stopping or pausing. The six year old remote that came with my iMac can be paired with the Apple TV, but that remote's home is in the kitchen so I can control iTunes while messing around in there.
I don't know why this remote is so fragile. It's not that expensive to replace, but frankly isn't reasonable to produce something that's going to die after a few years. So 3 stars for the initial performance; can't say anything good about it in the long term. …
