Default Pc songs via Remote

Alright I have no clue where to post this question, so when in doubt go to Other forum

What I want to do if, it is possible is to hook up a remote to my PC so I can change the song and maybe the volume, but mostly the songs. Is there anyway I can do this, do they sell something liek this

Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

You can buy a TV Tuner card with a remote, and the software should have a setting for the remote to control other devices on the PC.

most external usb soundcards have this function, and soundcards with external breakout boxes, or drive bay things.

I use a program called Salling Clicker, a USB Bluetooth dongle, and my Nokia phone to be able to do various remote control functions with applications in Windows.

However, there are PC remote controls out there which are standalone, and work without being associated with a soundcard or TV tuner, like the Trust Multimedia Remote Control...
