    Basic Winamp Remotes Available--Been away for a while

    I've been away for a while and wondered what are some the BASIC computer remotes that I can use for Winamp on Windows XP.

    I've come up with IRMAN ($35). But I also found these at tekgems.com:

    Creative Labs ($7): http://tekgems.com/Products/tg-cimr100.htm

    Generic ($5): http://tekgems.com/Products/tg-pbr.htm

    Streetmapz ($40): http://www.streamzap.com/products/pcremote/index.php


    I would like the least expensive one the would still work for Winamp.

    Thanks for the input.

    I like the Creative Labs one...it looks just dandy. If it won't support winamp out of the box for some reason, just get Girder and map the key functions to those of WinAmp.

    Thanks.

    In looking around further, I've remembered that I have a broken JVC vcr / remote. The tape mechanism broke but the remote still worked. Can I salvage the parts and hook it to my pc somehow?

    I also have spare serial cables (or serial mouse) laying around.

    After searching further....

    I found schematics for the DIY ir receiver. My question now is that if I wanted to DIY and I already have a matching remote and receiver from the same JVC vcr...then would the vcr board have the other parts that I need?

    Voltage regulator, resistor, etc...?

    I figured it out. The IR sensor from the vcr is a Sharp module. For whatever reason, I couldn't get it to work. Maybe I damaged it removing it from the VCR.

    Went to Radio Shack and picked up another sensor and wired up a receiver module. Using Winlirc...it works well with a Toshiba remote and Winamp 5.

    I haven't yet but I'm seriously considering buying it. Changing folders at 75 mph is kinda dangerous .

    that remote looks perfect for the car. I think i'll pick one up. Thanks!


    Edit: Just in case no one saw them, ebay has them for $21+$6 shipping.
