So I just bought the new Apple Remote and I'm having a problem pairing it. I turned on my photobooth to see if the light would come on when I pressed a button and it did flash a light..

I looked online to see what to do and I read that I had to go to system preferences-security- and then uncheck the disable apple remote... the problem is.. It's not showing



what should I do?

UPDATE- found out why it's not connecting..

Apparently Apple thought it would be cool to remove the IR receiver from the polycarbonate macbook so now it's basically pointless to use... awesome apple thanks alot.
