    Infrared not working with my Apple IR Remote
    I have a Macbook Pro 2.4GHZ late model and for some reason the infrared is not working.

    A roommate of mine has a Black MacBook (recent) and it connects with his and not mine.

    I unpaired it and everything from his and his responds within seconds, mine however, nothing.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out as I am really eager to get this working in my dorm.

    Thanks!

    I have searched Google for solutions and tried using every MENU + (insert button) combination and nothing.

    Specs:
    MBP 15", 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, OS X 10.8.2, iPad 1, 80gb iPod, ATV 1, iPhone 5
    Start by going to the Apple Menu>System Prefs>Security and make sure there is not a check mark next to Disable Remote Control Infrared Receiver. Other than than that I am of no help...

    Yeah that's not showing up at all and I am speculating it doesn't show up until you try to pair an IR Remote to your laptop.

    Aggh this is frustrating because I know this laptop has the IR receiver for the Apple remote...

    What version of OS are you using?

    I am having the same problem... and sometime last year it was working and thus Front Row was working. Again in the Security of System Preferences i do not have the Infrared on/off and I do not find it anywhere.
    My system is 10.4.11 and could it be related to it? Have tried everything and today I changed the battery again! Plus I have El Gato EyeTV with its control which also cesase working!
