Ever since i got my intel mini , I have been on a search to find a program that allowed me to use the remote with VLC. Well today I found that program (the beta version anyway) http://caseapps.com/sofacontrol.html . I am sure many of u are out there looking for the same thing. The only problem is that this thing is gonna cost $9.99 in a couple of days... crap . People dont do things for free anymore, oh well, maybe a free version will comeout sometime soon.
