You spent a few hours?
I found this in ~1 minute:
Vectir is a PC remote control application that lets you control popular media players such as Winamp, iTunes and Windows Media Player with an Infrared (IR) remote control or Bluetooth enabled mobile phone....
License:Freeware | Price: $0.00 | Size: 1.5 MB

I've no idea if it's any good, but have a look?


id doesnt work... i have a "on Intel(R) 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641"and it can only support a USB-UIRT so it didnt work :(

It would help the question to add the things you've already tried, and information like "I have on Intel(R) 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641".
