  • Remote for Windows

    Hi, this is probably a newbie question but that's what I am
    So, I decided to go with windows 95. And i want to use a remote controller to control the system. I found a site that explains how to do it for Linux, but can you guys tell me how to do it under windows? All i know is that I'll have to buy infrared sensor from radio Shack and wire it to my serial port, then it need some software I guess.
    Links will be appreciated!
    Thank you.

      Also, there's the Packard Bell Fast Media remote. They are available pretty cheaply, and have good third party software support. Again, a search should turn up all the info...
