    Hi, I have a SB Audigy Platinum sound card with remote control.

    Can the remote be used with third party software such as Win DVD. At present it only controls Creative software, which does not seem to include a DVD player?

    Thanks

    Roger

    Hi
    I also have a SB Audigy Platinum i dont use the remote control but,

    If you right click on the remotecenter icon on the task bar you can select "configure remotecenter". This will give you a list of options in a popup box try "windows applications" from here you can add other software which you have installed.
    How much functionality you get will be another prob. I did try it with powerDVD and can get the disk to play but only to the movie menu, i could not get past it. Maybe you will have better luck.

    I cant really be bothered with the remote coz i use a cordless keyboard with a built in mouse which works great.

    hope this helps some
