I got it to the point where the green light shows that it is receiving. Yet, WinAmp does not react to any of the commands, although I matched them with the same words as programmed in WinLirc.
Same is with Windows Media Player Classic -- how on Earth do I configure it? I searched on the forum, in the help but found no info. What address/port should I type in the WinLirc box in the Windows Media Player Classic? Nothing is mentioned in the help file except "WinLIRC and uICE checkboxes turn on appropriate remote control support system.". How can I be sure what words is WinLirc sending, is it possible to display them on the screen?
