Since Lion (I believe), Front Row has not been part of the installation. So, if your iMac's OS is Mountain Lion, there is no Front Row.

That ***** man, is there a way to add front row? What's the point in having a remote if you can't do anything with it? Sucky

To Mountain Lion? No...
It does work in other apps that are geared toward media playback, such as iTunes, DVD Player, QuickTime Player, etc.
I seem to recall an app a few years ago that made the Apple Remote more functional in general Mac operations. It may have been on of these (have not used them myself)
And this came up during the search

If you want complete remote control of your iMac and you own an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, try this.
or look at these for complete remote of anything Apple of recent.
