With the little white Apple remote, press the menu button. That will take you to Front row, andyou can listen to music, watch music videos and movies/TV episodes, and view your pictures.

As for software to turn on your visualizer (I'm guessing iTunes), I do not think so, you'll have to stick with command+T or turn it on from the menu.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

As far as I can tell, the remote just controls Front Row or just play, pause, next, back, forward and backward on video and music apps. To get the visualizer, you have to use Command+T.
