    Hi,

    I have XP Pro SP3 and want to use a remote control for Play/Stop etc
    with Winamp.

    My laptop has an irda panel and it is enabled but I only have remotes
    from my DVD and VHS players.

    I have seen a remote which uses a usb receiver with it but wondered how
    I go about connecting the actual remote control so that it can be read
    by the laptop irda instead of the usb one.

    Can this be done?

    Thanks
