Computer remotes that work with winamp?

Hello. I couldnt seem to find anything on this subject with the search feature.

Though i am looking for a PC Remote that works with winamp (it can even be a remote that comes with a tv tuner card.)

Most of the computer remotes ive seen are for windows media center.

I dont particularly like WMC and would prefer to stick with winamp.

So im looking for something that will work in windows vista with some of the basic functionality you would find on a keyboard.

ie: volume control, mute, previous/next track, etc.

I want a PC remote so i can change songs in winamp without having to constantly go to my computer while im trying to study.

Im sure there must be atleast a couple people here who have had experience with this situation here. Any help is appreciated.

The ATI Remote Wonder works pretty good for me. Has all the standard playback buttons and some other programmable buttons. You can control the mouse pointer with it too, which is pretty useful.

It came packaged with the ATI All-In-Wonder video card for me, but I believe you can buy a stand-alone version as well. The receiver just plugs into a USB port, so it has nothing to do with the video card or anything.

Just grab a USB-UIRT, they are IR Transceivers (two way) rather than just receivers (one way) like you get packaged with tv tuner cards an such. Then you can use any remote you have to control winamp and just about any other application as well. Another big difference is you can control hardware AV devices like your TV, DVD player, or AV amplifier using another remote or with your PC, as the USB-UIRT can send IR signals. Lots more bang for your buck.
The only other thing you will need is the driver software and some interface software like AIVMS.

Sounds complicated.

I think ill look more into the ati remote wonder plus.
Seems like it would get the job done and more.

Anyway, thanks for the assistance.
