You may be able to download Front Row and use some of the features it offers but as for the remote I don't think the Rev B models will support the infrared remote. Maybe someone else with more knowledge can shed a little light for you. :)

It will run it easily (but shadily on the legality side). I have Front Row on my 867mhz TiBook and it runs perfectly.

[I know it's wrong to post direct links here, but just type in "Installing Front Row" in Google.com (not .au, just Safari's google search bar). ]

[ Also, you can't use the Infrared remote, but you can use the keyboard to run an navigate it easily. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard it's nice]
