Licence: Freeware
Version 1.25 | Release Date: 2014-07-27 | Download
  • Enhancement: Now signed with a Developer ID certificate for kernel extensions.
  • Fix: During installation, Mavericks brought up a warning claiming that the kernel extension wasn't signed on some systems. This should no longer happen.
  • Fix: The kernel extension should now load without problems on systems running Yosemite.
  • Change: Bumped version number of preference pane so that it's now in sync with the driver and Remote Buddy's version.
Version 1.12 | Release Date: 2014-02-11 | Download
  • NEW: Retina support.
  • NEW: Internal info database updated with latest Mac® models.
  • Enhancement: Also offers installation if no Apple® IR receiver was found, but applications that can take advantage of other parts of Candelair are installed.
  • Enhancement: Incorporates the latest changes to its set of drivers for Remote Buddy.
Version 1.10 | Release Date: 2012-05-02 | Download
  • NEW: Now signed with IOSPIRIT's Apple® Developer ID, in preparation for OS X® Mountain Lion's Gatekeeper
Version 1.9 | Release Date: 2012-01-18 | Download
  • NEW: Restructured and partially rewritten Apple® IR Emulator. Now also compatible with applications using outdated code that depends on driver internals under 64 Bit kernels.
  • NEW: Legacy Mode has been removed.
  • Fix: Now correctly handles sleep/wakeup of the Apple® IR Receiver on iMac 2011 models. Previously, the Apple® IR Receiver became unavailable on some of these machines after a sleep/wake cycle.
Version 1.8 | Release Date: 2011-11-16 | Download
  • Fix: addressed an issue where a USB error wasn't handled properly on some Mac Minis (Early 2011) after waking from sleep, resulting in the IR Receiver becoming unresponsive until after a reboot.
Version 1.7 | Release Date: 2011-07-28 | Download
  • Enhancement: Updated driver (1.18.1) now shows the same display wakeup behavior under Lion as the driver supplied by Apple® with OS X® Lion GM:
    • the display is woken up when a sleeping system was woken up with the Apple® Remote.
    • the display will not be woken up when only the display is sleeping and the system is not sleeping.
    If you want your display to be woken up whenever you press a button on your Apple® Remote, you should give Remote Buddy a try, which provides this more HTPC-friendly behaviour.
Version 1.6 | Release Date: 2011-07-21 | Download
  • NEW: Lion support. Driver updated to version 1.18.
Version 1.5.1 | Release Date: 2011-06-09 | Download
  • Fix: Fixed a rarely occurring IOKit driver matching issue (introduced with driver version 1.9.0) that led to parts of Candelair being matched to regular, unrelated HID devices (like keyboards, mice, joysticks).
Version 1.5 | Release Date: 2011-05-27 | Download
  • NEW: Integrated Remote Control Diagnostics into the Candelair Preference Pane - helps you track down, understand and fix common Apple® Remote problems.

Version 1.2 | Release Date: 2010-11-14 | Download
  • Enhancement: Updated driver version 1.8.1 from Remote Buddy 1.16.6
Version 1.1 | Release Date: 2009-12-16 | Download
  • NEW: Support for the new Aluminum Apple® Remote
  • Change: The compatibility mode for applications with 10.5 dependencies has been renamed to "Legacy Compatibility Mode".
  • Note: If you want to use an application under OS 10.6.2 whose Apple® Remote support works under 10.5, but not under 10.6.2: try enabling the "Legacy Compatibility Mode" in Candelair's prefs and relaunch the incompatible application in question. When this mode is active, the Candelair driver mimics the 10.5 version of the OS X driver. The solution for developers to OS version compatibility issues: our driver-independent HIDRemote class.

  • Enhancement: Support for "Safe Boot" booting mode (the driver is loaded later during the boot process).
