I've had my AppleTV for a number of months.  However, I'm having problems with the remote when I'm using my TV to play music as my AppleTV remote operates my MacBook Pro as well as the TV.  So when I start to play a CD on the TV my MacBook Pro will play different CD.  How do I syncronise my remote to just AppleTV and stop operating my's so annoying....


Also can someone advise me on how to use my AppleTV so I can use my TV as a monitor when carrying work on my computer e.g. files etc (if possible).
