hohenyi, that is the option I went with. I just didn't need the girder program. Winlirc w/ Winamp plugin was enough. Works great. I did have to put Winlirc in the startup menu so that it would load automatically. Without that, Winamp gives an error when it starts up.
I had a few remotes. The Toshiba remote works well. The JVC remotes responded, but couldn't keep a good signal...according to winlirc.
One question, will Girder allow me to choose specific track numbers?
