Apparently an Apple TV can be controlled by a third-party remote - is a similar feature available for Mac OS X Lion?
Any remote that is capable of learning should do the job.
Sorry, should have been more clear - I understand that a learning remote can be taught to act like an Apple remote.
I'm asking about this new Apple TV feature that lets the Apple device learn the remote, instead of the other way around.
Can a Mac learn a third-party remote?
not as far as I know, I never heard anything about a new feature that let appletv learn remotes
This new feature is linked to at the top of this discussion - see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3296?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
