MacBook Pro :: External IR Sensor - Remote Won't Pair

Dec 7, 2014

I got an IR sensor from someone and i know it works, because it turns on I see the light in the front, and it shows up in the System Info. If I go into settings I See it now has the option to pair a remote. The Remote won't pair though.

Mac Mini :: Can't Seem To Find A Way To Pair Remote?

Jan 2, 2010

I've recently received my refurbished March 2009 Mac Mini. I want to use it as a media center and have an harmony remote that I would like to use to control it (mostly for boxee).My problem is that I can't seem to find a way to pair my remote with it. Let me explain.

So I launched Logitech Harmony Remote Software and added a new device, the Apple Mac Mini. I then updated my remote and finally updated my remote.Now, I have a macbook pro and a mac mini. Without pairing anything, I can effectively control the sound on my macbook pro, but not on my Mac Mini. Yes I've checked in the system pref in both machines, nothing is paired and I do not have a real apple remote.

If I use the pair function, it does pair with my macbook pro and keep controlling it and still does nothing on the mac mini (expected).If I unpair it then close my macbook pro and use the pair function near my mac mini, it still do not want to pair.My question is, aside from bringing it to the apple store to get it checked, is there a way to test if my IR port is working on my mac mini?

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth In It Won't Pair With Anything

Feb 14, 2012

I have two MacBook Pros, each about 6 months old. They are both running the latest version of Lion. Neither one will pair with any bluetooth device. I always get an error message saying "this device does not have the necessary services".I have a Canon printer that won't pair, and I thougth it was just a compatibility issue until I tried to pair a Jawbone Jambox (which used to pair), and a brand new Bose portable speaker. I get the same message every time.

Info:MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

MacBook Pro :: What Would Be A Good Monitor To Pair

Oct 9, 2010

I want to pair my MBP (high res antiglare) with a 24" monitor. The colour levels on the MBP are really good and I'm a little worried about buying a monitor and setting them up side by side and not having the two match in terms of quality.

Can anyone recommend a good monitor that is of equal quality to the MBP antiglare screens? I've read good things about the Dell ST2410 which is within my budget.... if really pushed I could go for the U2410 but would really rather not spend that much. Are there any other monitors that are cheaper than the U2410 that have 'mac mode'?

MacBook Pro :: Need To Pair Again Bluetooth KB After Sleep Mode

Dec 9, 2008

Every time I try to "discover" my new MBP with the Apple bluetooth keyboard, to wake the laptop up from sleep, it fails and I have to go through the process of setting up a bluetooth device. However the pairing takes forever, sometimes doesn't work at all, and I have to type in a new pairing code each time. The whole process takes between 3 and 20 minutes, depending on how quickly the MBP can find the keyboard. I have the same problem with both Apple wireless keyboards at work and home, so it's not the keyboard.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: MacBook Will Not Pair With IPhone

May 23, 2012

Black MB running latest updated version of Snow Leopard, iPhone 4 running iOS5.1.1 (profile info below is outdated).  I also have an non-G3 iPad that's running iOS5.1.1 and have no problem tethering it to the phone.  I want to use the phone as a personal wifi hotspot occasionally for my computer but Bluetooth panel in System Preferences shows a red light and says that the iPhone, which it apparently can see, is not connected.  I've tried deleting reference to the other in both devices and starting new connections.  I got as far as having a connection code display on the MB that I was to type into the phone.  As soon as I did so, the connection if there was one at the time broke.  I've read a whole lot of threads where users have had problems with USB connection for tethering their computers, but not much about Bluetooth connectivity issues.  I know that Bluetooth might not be the most stable product in Apple's inventory but I've had zero issues with the iPad, even when we're in the car and in areas where the cell signal is iffy.  I need to be able to use the computer the same way for business.

MacBook Pro :: 3rd Party Mouse Will Not Pair Using Lion?

Jun 17, 2012

Just upgraded to Lion tonight.  My HP Laser bluetooth Model N558 mouse which worked perfectly on the 17" macbook pro using Snow Leopard NOW will not pair with Mac.  Downloaded the latest HP drivers, did a software update, restarted but mouse attemps to pair for about 1-2 seconds and then error message comes up saying the Mouce cannot pair with the Mac.  Very frustrating and not finding any answers on MAC or HP forums. Error message on "select bluetooth device" says, "The device does not have the necessary services." It sure had the necessary services using Snow Leopard.  Next error message, "The paring attempt was unsuccessful.  The device is refusing the paring attempt..."   

No matter what I have tried, new batteries, restarts, take out batteries for 10 minutes, holding down 'discover' button for 10 seconds. I've tried just about everything mentioned in the forums.

MacBook Pro :: IPhone 5s Not Able To Pair With Laptop Through Bluetooth

OS X :: Remote Desktop Connection With Proper External IP?

Dec 16, 2009

I got my mac pro in england and right now I am in denmark sitting here with my macbook pro trying to control it. I setup Logmein client before I left which is working fine but the lag is annoying me, and I was wondering if there was a better solution so, I enabled "remote desktop" on my macpro and sitting here with apples Remote desktop trying to connect to the IP of my place in england (not the internal, the proper external) and as usual I can see I can connect to it, as its a public "student" residential area, I know I cant access the router but I also know they have not blocked any ports including the 5900 port which is required.

So is it my "DNS" which is blundering? Coz I can see when I make the remote desktop under the sharing tab, does it not create a dns "submask" - and if thats true. When I put that in to DNS I still cant connect any fancy or fantastic solutions? I don't mind a browser based client such has logmein, but one with a more "fluent" use would be wonderful, as i wanted to work on it live.

MacBook Pro :: Does The HDD Have Its Own Sensor?

Sep 14, 2010

I know the MBP has the motion sensor, im pretty sure this is built into the computer correct? and I know the stock hard drive had the option(cant quite remember but it had something to do with the motion) Does that option mean the HDD has the capability to stop due to motion using the MBP motion sensor or does the HDD have its own sensor?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Motion Sensor For SSD?

Apr 29, 2010

I have ordered several new MBPs (5 with SSDs...) for my clients, but have a mechanical HDD for myself in my new MBP; I just thought about the motion sensor that locks mechanical HDD read heads on sudden acceleration, and realized that it is an OS feature... Has anyone that has a mid 2010 MBP and a SSD noticed HDD lock in sudden movement with a SSD?

You can simulate this 'lock' by moving the MacBook suddenly when playing content from the drive... Has anyone seen the drive cause playback to halt for 2-3 seconds while the SSD 'recovers'? If so, this needs to be fixed...

ITunes :: Doesn't Wake External Drive With Library In Case If Remote Access

May 29, 2012

I have latest iTunes 10.6.1 and its library located on external drive, connected by FW800.

System properties -> Energy saver -> Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible is On  Everything works perfect in case of local access.

Also in case library's drive sleeps, it takes just several seconds more in order to wake drive. But remote access works only in case the drive is waked somehow. I.e. if Home Sharing is enabled and drive sleeps I cannot get access to the content from remote iTunes or Apple TV. 

I think it is a bug, remote access shall be not broken in case the drive is sleeping. Also it is known, some forums explain that you shall never put external drives in sleep mode in case this drive used for iTunes Home Sharing [URL]

MacBook Pro :: Sudden Motion Sensor With 2 HDs?

Jun 7, 2010

I've just installed a Crucial C300 256Gb in my Macbook Pro 17" and replaced the Superdrive with a Seagate 500Gb.

I'd like to disable the SMS for the SSD but keep it for the 2nd HD. Is there anyway to do this?

I believe the following is for all drives at once.

# to disable

sudo pmset -a sms 0

# to enable

sudo pmset -a sms 1

MacBook Pro :: Sudden Motion Sensor Not Working?

Sep 19, 2010

I just dropped in a 1 TB drive into my 17" MacBook Pro and it seems like that the Sudden Motion Sensor doesn't work not. I do not hear the sound when it engages as I did with the stock 500 gig drive that was in there. My understanding is that the Sudden Motion Sensor was not built into the drive and it was built into the notebook itself. Shouldn't I still be hearing the drive stop when the Sudden Motion Sensor engages?

MacBook Pro :: Finding Water Sensor Locations?

Jan 20, 2010

Since Apple has started putting these water sensors on almost all of their devices now, I am pretty sure that the unibody MBPs have them too (on portions exposed to the external environment; not just on the logic board and internal chasis).

I was wondering if anyone knew where they were located out of curiosity.

MacBook Pro :: Ambient Light Sensor Is Too Sensitive?

May 12, 2010

I've been using my mum's MPB C2D quite a bit, in anticipation of my own i5 arriving, and one thing that gets on my nerves is the ambient light sensor. It seems to be really sensitive, to the point where it will change the screen brightness when there has been no real changes in ambient light. If you move your hand over the sensor at the top of the screen, or even if someone walks past and casts a shadow it can change for a few seconds. Also, just moving the laptop around and the sensor changes the screen.

Obviously this setting can be turned off, but I'd like the feature if it wasn't so sensitive. Other than that, I love the MBP and can't wait for mine!

MacBook Pro :: Ambient Light Sensor Not Working?

May 16, 2010

As of today, I noticed my ambient light sensor doesnt seem to work. I tried disabling and re-enabling it in system preferences, but that hasn't done the trick.

Is there some test I can do to see if it's working or not? I know it worked two days ago, because i took the i7 15" MBP outside and it automatically switched to max brightness. Today I took it outside and the brightness didn't switch at all and I couldn't see the screen it was so dark.

Since the last time it definitely worked, all I've done is install Windows 7 64-bit with Boot Camp and hooked up the MBP to an external 20" monitor with a minidisplay-DVI adapter.

MacBook Pro :: Brightness Sensor Not Working Properly

Jun 14, 2010

I bought my first Mac computer last month, the 13" 2.4 variant. Loving it so far.I have lately noticed however that my ambient light sensor is not much of help. Before, after coming out of sleep I could notice the screen changing to accommodate for the room's light output. I could also put my hand over the sensor near the iSight and witness the brightness decrease in front of me.
