    Default Apple TV remote and iTunes on MBP

    When I use the remote to control my Apple TV, it always brings up iTunes on my MacBook Pro. Is there a way to disconnect the remote control from the computer?

    Yes there is. If you want to just disable the remote from the computer (ie: you don't want to control your mac with the remote ever) you can just disable remote control infrared receiver.

    System Preferences - Security & Privacy (Make sure the padlock is unlocked to make changes) Click "advanced" and check "Disable remote control infrared receiver"

    Or you can also go to your ATV settings and pair the remote specifically with the ATV.
