Hi,

I'm considering the purchase of a Mac Pro, and there's only one thing holding me back from buying this sweet machine:

There's no IR port.

No Front Row I can handle, because it's coming in Leopard. But how are we supposed to use the Apple Remote (or Apple Remote 2.0) with this machine? It was something I was planning on extensively using.

I don't imagine it could have been hard to add a small IR receiver on the front in addition to all the ports. Do you think it'll be built into new displays? If so, it's a big enough deal to me that I'd be willing to wait for new displays....

Your thoughts?

Although I would consider it less elegant than a built-in option, I'm perfectly willing to accept an IR USB input instead. Do any exist?

Hm. I was hoping to just get the IR receiver part and buy the Apple remote.

I don't see why it can't be both. The only reason I can imagine that the Mac Pro would not have an IR port is that it's frequently used under desks, etc, making the line of sight difficult to achieve. That's why it would make more sense on an ACD.

What about the possibility that Apple will include an IR receiver in their new line of ACDs?

Anyone think that might happen?

The ACDs were just updated when they introduced the Mac Pro, so it's unlikely to happen anytime soon.

I wouldn't call that an update; the prices were dropped and the contrast was raised and the response time was lowered by an average of 2ms.

I mean an update that includes revisions to the design, or a completely new design.

You guys mean something like this?: USB-2550 Keyspan Keyspan Digital Media Remote Control (USB - IRDA)

Aside from the above, what do you want the IrDA adapter for exactly? Solely so you can use Apple's Remote? For Front Row?

If you just want to get Front Row + Remote onto a Power Mac or the Mac Pro, seriously check out the earlier link I posted. Again: How To Install Apple’s Front Row 1.2.2. It includes instructions on installing Front Row and info on a Rf Remote specifically designed to be used with Front Row. You can buy that here: Rf Remote Front Row Mac Only

Here's something that's expensive, but claims to work with the Apple Remote:

Elgato Systems

Unfortunately, I can't figure out whether it actually lets the Apple Remote work with the IR receiver on the device itself, or whether "Works with Apple Remote" just means that it plugs into the standard Front Row interface when you activate it by using the remote with the built-in IR receiver. If the latter, then this wouldn't be useful to you.

I think that it just means that you can use the Apple Remote to control it's features. As far as I can tell, it doesn't have an IR port.

No, it definitely has an IR port.

EyeTV Hybrid does not come with a bundled remote, but it does have an IR receiver.

It can work with the Apple Remote bundled with new Macs, and with remotes included with other EyeTV products.

Separate EyeTV remotes may be available soon from our online store, to use with EyeTV Hybrid, if desired.
It can use the normal EyeTV remote, not just the Apple remote. The only question is whether it can use its own IR receiver with the Apple remote, or if its receiver is just for other remotes.

I use the ATI remote wonder remote control that I bought years ago with front row on my MDD. It works fine for me and the remote is RF so no nonsense about line of sight. I think it was $30 and the drivers are actually good. I have every button doing another function in each application.

the last pic is the remote wonder II I think.

the dell only is also confusing and makes no sense.

I really doubt that Apple is going to include these things in their new updated displays as people have been saying, for imagine how annoying that would be if you had a macbook pro (for example) with an isight and a display with an isight too

i want the same thing as you brokenjago. im kind of disappointed it isnt included with the mac pro, especially considering that a macbook pro is a laptop / portable machine.. doesn't make sense why you would need a remote for that. while a mac pro is a desktop that stays in one place

Because this way when Apple ends up introducing a mid-range mini-tower (please...), the iMac can have the built-in iSight / Front Row stuff as its "gimmick" over the mini-tower.

As stated previously, I just want a small IR USB adapter so I can use the Apple remote with Front Row, which should be included with Leopard.

Well, I hear that the next iPods will double as a Bluetooth remote for the all new Front Row 2.0... and it can stream 1080p HD video and Apple Lossless music right to your Mac. And it can take phone calls, too. Your IR remote will be obsolete.

How is FrontRow useful for you guys? Just curious. I've played around with it on my iMac for awhile when I first received the iMac, but that was it. It seemed like a neat toy, but I didn't have a use for it.

FrontRow would be cool once a Mac Mini DVR is released (if ever).

Well, I watch a ton of movies and shows on my computer, and I've always wanted to be able to watch them from the comfort of my bed, without having to get up and change whatever I wanted to be changed. I figured front row would be perfect for this.

Salling Clicker seems cool, too bad I don't have a cellphone.

I was disappointed when I noticed, and checked, the optional front row install from my MacPro install DVD... only to find out that it doesn't do anything, or was killed with that first software update.

Hey Apple how about that bluetooth remote your working on? I'll be happy to help with the testing. I have quite a few songs and I enjoy watching movie trailers. In fact while your sending me that you might as well send me one of those iTV things, I could help there too. :-)

I hate current cellphones. They're ugly, they're hard to use, the buttons are hard to press, and everything about them is inelegant.

The only cellphone I've ever seriously considered buying is the KickFlip from Helio. Now there's a phone - stylish, easy to use, powerful, and the buttons are nice and big.

I was about to buy one when BLAM! They have no BlueTooth. LAME!! I want BlueTooth!

Guess I'll be waiting for the iPhone.

I don't have a cellphone either. It's bad enough the house phone rings off th hook due to telemarketters, why do I need to be contacted anywhere I go.

Your advantage is right in what you are saying. Telemarketers calls your house phone, not your cell phone. With a cell phone you are also in control of when you want to be contacted at all. Turn it off and people go straight to message bank.

Getting rid of my house phone was the best thing I ever did (way back in 2000). Besides, do you call people or do you call houses? When you think about it the only people who need to phone houses (non-specific person) is a telemarketer/survey.

Generally it doesnt work on intel mac (non-UB). Maybe most of the intel mac has IR + Remote bundle (except the low end imac, edu imac & Mac Pro).

Maybe Steve expect everyone that has a Mac Pro and want Frontrow feature to buy a iTV next year.

Well I suspect that when Leopard is out, Apple will release some kind of usb connectible IR device with the frontrow remote to accomodate those macs that are left out at the moment : I swear, sometimes I can hear my macpro sobbing at night! It's sad I'm telling you...

I too want Front Row and the Apple Remote on a Mac Pro. Not some less-elegant, less-integated solution, not some other remote that's more complex, or thicker, or won't work with iPods, or needs an extra dongle or more cable clutter. I really like the the Apple Remote. And I like Front Row too. iTunes is my stereo, DVD Player is my, well, DVD player, and I give iPhoto slideshows too. Soon I will be watching TV shows on iTunes thanks to the new 640x480 quality (1.99 per show is cheaper than cable for me). All of this would work great with Front Row. Plus I want to get EyeTV Hybrid, which has no remote included but works with Apple's. And I think MANY high-end Mac users do things like give presentations (iPhoto, PowerPoint, Keynote) and play DVDs or music--even if the Mac is only used at work, and many Mac towers are high-end home users, gamers, freelancers who don't work 24/7, etc.

So the lack of Apple Remote on the Pro is ONE factor (along with price and portability and iSight) making me consider canceling my Mac Pro plans and "settling" for an iMac 24.

I also have no cell phone yet Not worth the price, for the hassle my cell-phone friends deal with.

I also have no cable or satellite TV Way too expensive for the handful of shows I would watch. I will save a TON of money by buying those shows (Galactica, Daily Show) on iTunes even if I never planned to own them. I would have to watch an hour of cable a day, ALL year (weekends and summer-rerun season too) to make it cost less than iTunes. And I have no desire to do so, not on top of the free programming (like Lost and Simpsons) that I already watch, plus Netflix.

And soon I will have no TV at all, if I get a new Mac + EyeTV Hybrid.

But I will still have running water

This is pretty much exactly how I feel. I don't mind the non-integration of the iSight, because I can just buy one and clip it to my display. It's the Lack of a built-in IR port that bothers me...

As far as I know, the IR receivers in the MacBooks and MacBook Pros are connected via USB. I'm pretty sure it isn't too difficult to jury-rig the IR receiver from a MacBook or MacBook Pro in to a Mac Pro and hide it internally behind the front of the case. Since the front of the case has all the holes, it shouldn't impede on the reception too much.

The only questions are... (1) Where can we order the IR receiver? and (2) How do we get Front Row installed on a Mac Pro?

I'm assuming that the drivers are already part of OS X.

wow, you actually went and try it.

I doubt Leopard will be the answer. I have tried it on a G5 Dual and I couldnt find the frontrow, much like current Tiger, if your Mac doesn't have the built in IR, it wont activate.

Once I get my Mac Pro, I will run the beta and try connect an IR USB dongle and see. That should 1-2weeks to go.
