    Looking for a program.

    I am looking for a program to run my computer. I have listed some important features and then some that would be nice.

    My hardware is as follows
    fv24
    i have to run winme with the fc24, there are no drivers to make the tv out video work correctly with any higher os and win 98 is to buggy for me.
    celeron 800
    1gig pc133ram
    soundblaster live! in the only pci port
    irman on the only com port
    atx psu
    redant 7" widescreen lcd display
    fairly large hard drive (a 60gig 5400rpm maxtor or a 100 gig 7200 rpm ibm) i havent decided yet


    Could somebody recommend me a program?

    Required capabilities.

    by the way, caps are not for yelling, they are used to differentiate the requests from their descriptions.

    CONTROLL WITH IRMAN RECIEVER
    I want to be able to use an irman and be able to define buttons on my remote to do specific things in the program.

    MP3 PLAYBACK.
    I want the program to give me basic functions for playing mp3s. I also want it to have some type of menu that will allow me to move around my directiories and load any directory into the mp3 player, like cobraIII does.

    DVD playback
    I want to be able to watch dvd's. becouse I have a widescreen display i want to be able to display in a 16:9 format. powerdvd has an option to uncheck "maintain aspect ratio" and the picture then fills the screen, that would be fine.

    AVI AND DIVX PLAYBACK.
    basically the same as above. this is why cobraIII dosent work for me, I cant get the movie player to fill the screen.

    SUPPORT FOR SOME KIND OF RADIO
    I use an fv24 and already have a soundblaster live in the pci slot, so a usb tuner would be preferable. cobraIII dosent have this either.

    OPTIONAL STUFF

    SUBWOFFER VOLUME
    my souldblaster live has a front/rear/and subwoffer output. I dont use the rear output, but i do use the sub and it would be nice to controll the subwoffer volume from inside the program with my remote instead of having open the creative mixer and adjust it with the mouse.


    thanks for reading this

    Ok for all but the radio suport you could use media payer
    And you should chek on winamps site if there isn't a plugin for winamp3 that would give you radio suport . If i were you i would go with winamp3 because it's verry skinable hense you can find a skin for all tastes ....

    winamp3
    plays audio
    plays video and has crazy visualsations
    Apple Ipod 20gig 4th gen black and white. Saves you lots of time. and a pocketpc with wifi for the ocasional email cheking and mapping at a hotspot.
