    Quoted from item description (directly above these Q/As):
    "Compatible with Apple products introduced in 2005 or later that have a built-in infrared (IR) receiver."

    Because the Mac Pros do not have an infrared receiver, this Apple Remote will NOT function with your Mac Pro

  • The Apple Remote does not officially support any Mac Pro, as they do not have a built-in infrared (IR) receiver. You can purchase an external (usually USB) IR receiver and usually get that working, however it is not supported by Apple.

    From the product details:

    "Compatible with Apple products introduced in 2005 or later that have a built-in infrared (IR) receiver".
