CA3LE Posted August 25, 2012 CID Report Share Posted August 25, 2012 It was driving me insane that iTunes kept popping up every time I hit play on my apple IR remote. After some research I found that you actually have to patch the rcd daemon to disable this. Luckily someone named NoMitsu created a very simple patch to resolve this apple annoyance. ... many of the links out there pointing to this file result in a 404 error however so I wanted to give people an alternative download to hopefully help some people out. MMFix.dmg Very simple and straight forward process... You can also revert the changes simply by reopening the application... For those of you like myself that prefer VLC or another media player over iTunes and use the IR Remote this patch will alleviate the headache of iTunes popping up, ruining your movie every time you hit the play button. ...seriously Apple, you couldn't put an option for that. Wasn't Microsoft sued for something similar... forcing users to use their application. The end user should have a choice of how they want to use their computer! (without having to patch or hack system files). At any rate, I've used this simple yet effective patch and it works beautifully. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
