Mira Enables the Apple Remote for Any Mac
Not all Macs feature Apple Remote support “in-the-box,” including the Mac Pro desktops and the latest MacBooks. It doesn't matter if you have a G3 or an Intel Mac, with Mira and a supported IR receiver, you can use the Apple Remote with any application.
Mira and Manta™ TR1
The first product in Twisted Melon's Manta line, the TR1 is an infrared learning transceiver (receiver/transmitter). It connects to an available USB port and along with Mira, enables enhanced use of the Apple Remote control on any Mac.

Already Own a USB IR Receiver?
Some customers may already have an IR receiver they use with another product, so we're building support into Mira for a number of alternate receivers.
Keyspan DMR & Express Receivers
Though somewhat bulky, these receivers have been available for a number of years and enjoyed relatively wide availability. If you have one of these lying around, now's your chance to take it out of the drawer and put it to use with Mira and the Apple Remote. Your model number must be in the UIA-11 series.
MCE (eHome) 2005 Receivers
These USB products are designed for Windows Media Center Edition 2005 -if you already have one lying around, download Mira and give it a try.
The model shown above is from Philips/Microsoft and is available in a stand-alone kit with a remote. Other variations are available in different colors, shapes, sizes and may also come with products from third parties such as Hauppauge, HP, Dell, Toshiba, etc. MCE products do not support wake from sleep on the Mac.
Need an Apple Remote?
The Apple Remote is available on its own as an accessory. You can get more information on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
