Hi all,

Wondering if anyone can shed some light as to what IR receiver I can use to add to a Mac that doesn't have one and will work with the Apple remote.

Apple Remote & Mira USB IR Receivers - Manta Remote Hardware from Twisted Melon (http://twistedmelon.com/mira/hardware.html)

I have one I might no longer need has not been used for some months (as was only lightly used). Will know in a week or two if it is surplus

Do I need to get the Mira software or will the IR receiver on it's own work without additional software?

Yeah, I've ordered the receiver+software bundle. Just in case.

No point ordering the receiver only to wait another week or so for the sofware if it's needed :D
