my ATV2 remote works great, in fact to great. whilst i am controlling the ATV it also controls my MBP simultaneously..

is there any way to disconnect the MBP or un-pair it for the remote. it isn't actually paired but it seems to have stumped me.

any help greatly appreciated as my wife is on the other end of the MBP and isn't too happy with me controlling her with yet another remote control...

thanks in advance

need to be checked depending on which one you want.
