Software Tip: If you want to control Winamp using buttons
then try this program: COM-port Winamp Control
You can connect 4 or 15 buttons to one serial port. Every button can be used for 3 different functions.
There are 49 different functions to choose from, and the most important ones, at least for me, is that you can have a button that skips directories and one that shuts down Windows.
It can also start Winamp on startup. So instead of using Winamp as shell, I'm using this program. When the computer starts and the shell is loaded, winamp automatically starts. When I want to shut down Windows, I just have to press a button.
I love it. Now all I need to control my mp3-player is 4 buttons. One for play, stop, pause; two for ffw/rewind; next/previous track and next/previous folder, and one for shutdown + other things like shuffle or something.
