Mac Mini Media Center: Harmony Remote + Plex

I’ve been falling behind with the series of posts about getting the most out of your Mini as a media center. I’ve made some tweaks, and figured I should share the joy. So expect a few updates in this vein over the next week or so.


Plex is my media center app of choice, and the recent versions introduce Harmony Universal Remote support, now with less fiddling. There’s a profile within the harmony setup app for Plex now, and it works well. Now I can put the Apple Remote aside and actually use only one remote. Sweet. Instructions here.
