You need to un-pair one from each computer and only have one paired with each computer.
See if > Pairing your Apple Remote with your computer helps...?
You might also want to un-pair both from both computers and then discreetly re-pair one with each Mac.iMac, Mac Mini, iPad, iPods, Mac OS X (10.6.8), (10.8.2), Safari, iTunes, iPhoto

Does the remote remember which computer it is paired to? I though only the computer remebers that.
In any case, currently there is not remote paired to any computer (both computers have clean new Mountain Lion installations). And I cannot pair any remote to any of my machines. In between, I tried with the laptop as well, and it is not pairing as well. I also tried an (old, still working) third remote... nothing is happening.
Some apps seem to take control of the remote (e.g. pressing menu start Plex on my systems). Could that be the issue? Is there a Terminal command to give Mac OS back full control over the remote?
Or could it be something else? 'Is there an app for that' a la ForcePair.app?
p.s. this is the page that I was refering to ealier, not working for me

Sounds like Plex has taken over, unfortunately I don't have or use Plex.
Have you tried the > Plex Forums

I had ran Plex for a while. But, if memory serves me correctly there was a 3rd party remote preference. I think it was Candelair if memory serves me correctly.

Thank you, Jeff! Installed Candelair, and the pairing worked on first try. Appreciate your memory!
