Wiimote controls Front Row on a PowerBook


I have this 2005 12″ PowerBook G4 with Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.9 and was jealous of the new MacBooks’ Remote Controls. One day I found a movie on youtube about someone controlling Front Row with a Wiimote. I just didn’t find all the links in one place. Maybe this is of help for you. It should work on other Bluetooth enabled Macintosh computers as well.

1. Get Front Row to work on a Mac without Remote Control

2. Install DarwiinRemote

  • Get DarwiinRemote
  • The key mapping matches the one of Front Row by default, though, you might want to change the Wiimote’s + and – buttons to change volume control as well

Works like a charme.

You can also use the Wiimote with DarwiinRemote to go through your PowerPoint Presentations 🙂
