    I'm kinda looking for the same as that little Creative Labs one... except in RF.

    I can't seem to find one, though. The RF ones I find are either too big and bulky, or made to work with iPods/Front Row for the Mac.

    EDIT: Scratch... I may have found one.

    I would try to take the receiver apart and see if that increases the range and size. I know the internals of it are considerably smaller.

    Try the Air Click....there are wrappers that let it work with WinAmp if you prefer WinAmp and it has built in functionality to work with WMP.

    The receiver for the creative remotes really is a lot smaller if you take it apart and wrap up the PCB itself with electrical tape or something - there's a ton of wasted space in the plastic shell. But, it can be made even smaller. I used one in my car for a while a year or two ago and my receiver died on me at one point, so I made my own using a PIC microcontroller.


    My board consisted of a surface-mount 8-pin PIC, and a single capacitor. Basically it's a "bump in the cord" when covered with heatshrink. It was used with an external rs232 level shifter because I already had one set up, but I could add that directly to the board instead and it would still be quite a bit smaller than the original board. If there's any interest I might be able to whip up some boards, or get a small run made professionally if there's enough interest.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:
