You either need to pair the remote to your Apple TV or disable the IR receiver on your iMac.
*To pair Apple TV with the included remote*
Choose Settings > General > Remotes from the Apple TV main menu.
Choose Pair Apple Remote.
You can also press and hold the Menu and Next/Fast-forward buttons for 6 seconds to pair Apple TV and the remote.
When you’ve successfully paired your Apple Remote, Apple TV displays a chainlink symbol above a picture of a remote in the setting menu. Apple TV now works only with the paired remote.
Use the Security pane in System Preferences to *turn the infrared ("IR") reception on your Mac off* (or back on). To do this:
Choose System Preferences from the Apple () menu in the upper-left menu bar.
Choose Security from the View menu.
Click the lock and enter your Administrator password if necessary.
Select the "Disable remote control infrared receiver" checkbox.
