Does this blog and the posts after this blog offer any clues? http://blog.logitech.com/2009/08/05/new-logitech-professional-presenter-r800-and -logitech-wireless-presenter-r400/ Is your MacBook Pro one with built-in IR or not?

Also why did you post this to the 10.5 forum, if your machine has 10.6? Note they are vastly different operating systems. It would help to know if you really were trying to get it to work under 10.5, or 10.6.7.

Hi Brody and thank you.
So, I am sorry for the wrong post; I already checked the link you gave me, but no solution. The only helpful solution is (partially) at http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A321Q681SJX17V/ref=cm_pdp_rev_more?i e=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview#R3MVQK8TL6VMS8
I cannot modify the keyboard shortcut to force Keynote to recognize the F5 key as "play slideshow", even following the instructions (i:e:: in Keynote menu I continue to find the Command-Option-P instead the F5).

Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard and mouse lets you control shortcuts. What MacBook Pro machine ID do you have? Look in the Apple menu -> About This Mac -> More Info.
DO NOT give us your serial number. This is a key to your warranty. And we are only part of a user to user forum.

Unfortunately I tried again and again those controls in the Preference Panel -> Keyboard (nothing to modify in the Mouse panel), making arrangements, but I cannot obtain the change from the Command-option-P shortcut (to have the presentation playin Keynote) to the F5 in the Keynote menu. I also tried in my iMac Intel 27" with MACOSX 10.6.7, too...
What machine ID do you ask for? (Model indentification: MacBookPro7,1; SMC Version 1.62XX; serial number 73031XXXXXX; Hardware UUID ....)

For you and everyone needs, I solved the problem.
The issue was that one must type exactly the word(s) that compose the menu in Keynote (i.e., in Italian I was writing "inizia presentazione" when giving the new F5 shortcut to the presenter, instead of "riproduci presentazione" that is the line you find in the Keynote menu). After writing the correct words, the Presenter gives me all functions after modifying the Keynote shortcut from Command-Option-P to F5.
Thank you for your suggestions.

u r right motopedico.
instead of using "Play slideshow" i change exactly keynote words "Play Slideshow". unfortunately I still cannot initalize blank screen. Any hints?

I have gotten the Play Slideshow to work but can't seem to get the black / blank screen to work. I tried a number of variations even the official "Pause presentation and show black screen" and I can't seem to get it to accept B as the keyboard shortcut. Has anyone had sucess with this yet?
