*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.iMac (Intel), MacBook Pro (15.4 inch), Mac mini (Intel), MobileMe, FCE, iApps 09, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Escaped Windows in 2005!

He needs to disable the IR receiver on the iMAc.
Pairing it with the Apple TV will allow the Apple TV to be controlled only by that remote.
It will not prevent that remote from controlling other devices.iMac G5 (Rev B) ALS - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), silver mini, blue mini, silver shuffle
