    I was wondering if it is even possible to pair the sony google tv remote with a macbook via ir? I home hoping to use the remote as a wireless keyboard for both tv and computer, but I don't know if it is even possible. Ideas on starting points?

    You cannot' use the remote as a wireless keyboard. Since Lion doesn't have Front Row, it's kind of pointless, but if you have an Apple TV, you can try controlling it with the Sony remoter by going into Settings > General > Remotes and choosing 'Learn Remote'.

    anyway, how to pair it (as BTR) with Mac - here
    FYI, Sony Remote (NSG-MR5U/ MR7U) has no IR transmitter.
