Default Cheapskate Universal remote and media players

This is a story of what a cheapskate I am as I didnt want to buy a proper pc media remote.
I have a usb Playstation controller to pc converter,
I bought a playstation 2 remote for 1 at a car boot sale.
Using joymouse I set the controls to mimic wmp keyboard shortcuts then used my learing remote (Tevion/Omega URCT-48B) to learn the functions off the Playstation remote.
Im limited to 16 inputs but its much better (cheaper) than buying an overpriced pc remote.

My ps2 controller converter doesnt work in vista64 ,suprise suprise,it shows up as a HID in the device manager ,but no joy in the gaming device.
2500K 4.7ghz,P8P67Pro,120gb Force3, 8gb Vengeance,GTX970,TX850v2,W7HP,LaCie Blue 22" crt COMMODORE 64 Silver Label 1Mhz/128D 4Mhz(Z80)
