10.4: Use the Apple Remote with other applications
Authored by: blixa on Feb 28, '06 09:11:52AM

Unfortunately, the volume up/down on the remote changes the _system_ volume level, not iTunes's (whether or not iTunes is in the foreground). So, it has no effect on the volume if you're streaming music to an Airport Express base station. Otherwise, good find!

10.4: Use the Apple Remote with other applications
Authored by: PCheese on Feb 28, '06 10:37:59AM

Actually, it does control the volume level in iTunes' and other applications' somewhat (I tested DVD Player).

When the system volume is increased to its maximum level, the volume up button increases the application volume. This only works for increasing the volume.

However, I haven't been able to get Keynote 3 to work with the remote on my iMac.
