Has anyone had any luck getting an Apple remote to work with Boxee on non-Apple hardware?
I have an old netbook that I have turned into a surprisingly capable Boxee machine using an Ubuntu USB live image, and I have a couple of Apple remotes that I never use which I would love to be able to use with it.
I've been playing around with lirc by cannot get it to recognise the Apple remote through a USB IrDA interface (although it recognises the interface).
Does the Apple remote only work with Apple IR receivers?
I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious, and I'll keep trying, but I don't want to waste a load of time trying to get it to work if the Apple Remote requires a Apple IR receiver hardware.
