Default Try Again

Ok, I did a post this morning about IrDA and remote controls, and I feel I may have gone too complex in what I was asking.

I've found a couple of pieces of software which will allow me to control Windows Media Player with a remote control, but I need help with the basics first.

Does anyone know of any software that will allow a remote to communicate with a laptop via a built in IrDA on an Intel Chipset?

It is an Intel 915PM Express Chipset, and the remote is one supplied with a 'PC Line TV' card.

And before anyone says 'buy a remote and receiver kit', I dont wanna do that cause I wanna keep it compact, as the remote I have is the size of a credit card and the IrDA of course, is built into the laptop.

Please help me people, show me how clever you all are, lol!!

Thank you in advance!!!!!!!!!!!
