    No, the new iMac does not have an IR receiver that would be required for any of the remotes, and the software doesn't exist for the new remote to control the Mac.

  • Hi i actually did get the Apple Sir remote working with my iMac buy buying an app called SiriMote which pairs your remote by Bluetooth and allows you to control iTunes remotely. So yes it won't work with the old apple tv remote with IR \ Infrared but it will work with the new apple tv bluetooth remote. :)
