Hya,

I have spare apple remote control, I was wondering, would there be a way to get it working with raspberry pi?

do you have an IR receiver that works with Linux?

It wouldn't be raspberry pi specific, find an IR sensor that works with linux and then use the apple remote with it.

If I'll buy any receiver that supports http://www.lirc.org/ I should be fine?

Yo did you ever get this working? What receiver did you buy?

I have this receiver but would love to use the apple remote instead of the MS one
