TekGems WinAMP Remote Control

 

When first receiving the WinAMP remote control from TekGems, we noticed a logo on the bottom of the remote and for ages it bothered us wondering what it was. Finally when it came to installing and paying a little attention to the manual, it was quickly discovered that it was made by Packard Bell. The relief was instant!

 

 

Setting up the remote isn't hard...if you chose to read the instruction manual. Included within the package is everything you need to get the remote up and running. First we have the installation guide, the remote, an infrared receiver, a CD with everything needed and a manual explaining the remote.

 

Included on the CD is WinAMP 3, infrared software and the necessary plug-in to get the remote up and running. Once everything is installed, make your way to the plug-in section of WinAMP and after adding the included plug-in, you can map your keys out as you wish. Once you have decided what buttons want to control what, you are ready to sit back and cruise your mp3z, control volume and so forth without any effort at all.

 

The remote control isn't too bad - it does what it's suppose to but would probably only suit a small group of people. The remote is best suited for a PC home entertainment system where you're sitting back on the couch or walking around the house and getting to your keyboard involves stretching your arm more than a few centimeters.
