Twisted Melon ship mira
Twisted Melon has released an update to its software that enables every USB-enabled Mac running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger to use the Apple Remote. mira 1.2 now includes support for Apple's built-in IR receiver and other third-party IR receivers. mira, designed exclusively for the Apple Remote, offers functions for more applications than Apple's bundled Front Row software. The software now supports external USB IR Receivers, offers default profiles/settings for over 40 applications, and offers import/export profiles to share with others on the internet. Version 1.2 also supports the company's new Manta TR1 Transceiver (available from the Twisted Melon online shop) as well as all eHome 2005 (Media Center Edition) receivers and transceivers, which are found with many Windows MCE systems and available online as well as in local computer shops. The software is available for $16 (along with optional USB-based IR hardware receivers).
