Fist generation or second generation Apple remote desperately needed! I just recently spent oh, around $5 to $8 at my local Home Depot to replace the batteries on my second-generation remote for use with my iMac—only to be disappointed that the remote failed to work. I mean, it worked sporadically for the first few hours, but then nothing. Both first- and second-generation remotes (the plastic, and the much-thinner silver colored one) work perfectly with my iMac. Perhaps some of my fellow readers here at eiC have an extra iMac remote (do they come with Mac Minis too? I'm not sure right now) that they're willing to part with, perhaps from an older machine you no longer use. Not looking for freebies—but I'm willing to pay you $5 for postage for shipping the item via PayPal. It truly would be a lifesaver for me. I can send you my home address via PM. Serious offers only and you must sign a document that you will not show up at 3AM at my home address to scare the living crap out of me while I'm peafully enjoying my sleep! Thank you kindly for any help you may be able to provide. I'm going to take the liberty of tagging @Napoleon PhoneApart because I know he has a lot of hook-ups that may be able to help me.
