Following up on yesterday's "How to enable Front Row on the Mac Pro" post, Sam Obletz sent us a note alerting us to the fact that the instructions don't work if you're using a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse. Fortunately, Sam included instructions that do work with the Bluetooth Mighty Mouse. The steps trick the Bluetooth controller, receiver, and HID driver into thinking there is IR present.

First, read the original tip on on MacOSXHints.

The following steps are what you must do after adding the boolean value for M19-0a, M19-0b, and M19-1:

  1. Click on the arrow to the left of M6.
  2. Click on the first property that appears, whatever it is.
  3. Press New Sibling, in the upper left of the window.
  4. A new model string will be inserted and rename it to HIDRemoteControl.
  5. Locate the new HIDRemoteControl line (it's in alphabetical order).
  6. Change the type from String to Boolean.
  7. Change the Boolean value to Yes.
  8. Click on the arrow to the left of M6-events.
  9. Click on the first property that appears, whatever it is.
  10. Press New Sibling, in the upper left of the window.
  11. A new model string will be inserted and rename it to HIDRemoteControl.
  12. Locate the new HIDRemoteControl line (it's in alphabetical order).
  13. Change the type from String to Boolean.
  14. Change the Boolean value to Yes.
Thanks for the contribution, Sam!
