Default controling a pc via IrDA

I used to have a tv-tuner card with a remote which enabled me to control my pc via the remote. Besides changing channels i could also open other programs and turn off the PC. The card died but i also have an IrDA dongle (from sigmatel). Now there must be a little program somewhere that would enable me to use any remote on my IrDA dongle to control my PC. But where? I havent located anything like this, only programs which turns the PC into a universal remote which I don't find very handy for a desktop. Anyone knows anything?

Thanx.
Already tried pc remote control but it only seems to work with com port devices. The other link guided me to a program called girder (www.girder.nl) which so far seems to be the solution.

Nope. That didn't do it either. Doesn't work with a standard usb IrDA-dongle.
