Fix Apple remote issues with Snow Leopard

Thanks to some poking by other smarter people, I managed to make the Apple remote work again with 3rd party apps (Boxee, Plex, Hulu, etc) on Snow Leopard.

Quick instructions:

  1. Go to System/Library/CoreServices
  2. Move Front Row.app and rdc.app to another folder. (You may need to Quit them from Activity Monitor).

The Apple Remote will no longer launch Front Row or control the volume, which allows you to use it on other apps. Of course, this is a fugly hack, please don’t use unless you understand the consequences.
