    The setup is going to be a livingroom computer hooked up to the stereo. the reason i want a remote is to be able to change songs w/out having to physically go up to the computer.

    all i really want is a remote control, with a USB iR reciever. but...i really dont know where to look for that? i cant afford/dont need everything included with the SB Audigy 2.

    do you guys have any ideas on where i could find what im thinking of?

    winfast expert tv card maybe. It has an excellent set of features, and is very affordable (maybe in the region of $60).

    shutup you fucking douche. You're a lying asshat that deserves to get ass-raped by a giant squash. You have no fucking idea what you're talking about.


    (that's for Sled, btw)

    The XP MCE remote *DOES FUCKING WORK* with other versions of Windows XP (home and pro)
