Using Keyboard Media Buttons with WinAmp?

Hey,
I'm trying to make my keyboard's play, fwd, back, stop, pause buttons work with winamp. It seems like there should be a simple answer--I searched and didn't find anything. Global hotkeys doesn't recognize the buttons. FWIW, this is an HP Media Center PC.

Any help would be much appreciated. Seems like I got these to work before but I forget how.

Thanks all.

Is there a keyboard utility that lets you select which application for the MM keys? Perhaps an icon in the tasktray or in the Control Panel.

Are you using a HP MultiMedia keyboard or another MM keyboard?

Apparently HP uses a non standard format for their MM-keys.

Maybe one of the following plug-ins...
HP Multimedia Button Support
Reproduction Control v1 36 (this review mentioned success with the plug-in)
RM-X for Winamp (this old post mentioned success with the plug-in)

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

That's it! RM-X worked before, I think. I'm trying it out now. Thanks for your response.

That post (and this thread) is over a year old.

Home Page for RMX
RMX Media Edition <--- AFAIK, that is the current version of the Winamp plug-in.
