I mainly use apple remote when I watch a movie with VLC or when I give a presentation using OpenOffice.

Snow Leopard 10.6.1 launched itunes whenever I was using VLC, 10.6.2 OpenOffice just don't detect the remote anymore...

I was worry about security at beginning then I realized Candelair comes from the guys who make Remote Buddy so I decided to give it a try.

Candelair just worked flawlessly when I needed VLC or OpenOffice, the menu is simple but there is only one button I care about : Activate Leopard compatibility mode!

Then the Apple remote just works!

Too bad it doesn't work with Twisted Melon's Matra TR1 receiver. Been looking for a way to get rid of it's Mira software on my Mac Pro that never seems to work right and is crippled under Snow Leopard ($15 for nothing). I'll try it on my MacBook Pro though with it's built in IR.
