PMP on Mac Mini not being controlled via Apple IR Remote

Hi all, I have a Mac Mini running macOS Sierra 10.12.4 running the latest 64 bit version of Plex Media Player. I have a Plex server running on a different machine running Version

We used to be able to control Plex via a Apple IR remote control on the Mac Mini which has a built in IR receiver. Now for the life of me I can't get Plex to respond to the Apple IR Remote. If I open iTunes and use the remote, it works, so I know I have communication between the remote and the Mac Mini. Just not between the Remote and PMP.

I can't find any settings within Plex Media Player that pertains to remotes.

Please point me in the right direction.
