    By default, this remote is set to control every mac in range and every mac in range is set to respond. However, there is an option in the security pane of system preferences that will allow you to pair that specific computer with a specific remote (just make sure you don't forget which remote is paired with which computer!)

  • By default the remote will control any Mac in IR range. You can, however, pair a Mac with a specific remote in System Preferences > Security under the 'General' tab by clicking the 'Pair' button.

  • On the old white remotes you could hold the remote close to the computer and hold down next+menu at the same time and it will sync it with that specific computer. I am sure this has the same feature.
