I've just set up an HTPC in my room. I'm using a Matrox g450 vid card for TV out, and playing movies with the DVDMax feature. I do not have a monitor connected, only TV.

The problem with this configuration is that I can not control the movie playing through Windows Media Player or PowerDVD because I can not see the mouse or anything other than the mpeg output on the TV screen.

Does anyone know of an application that would allow me to program keyboard hotkeys to control Windows Media Player and/or PowerDVD.

Thanks in advance.

media player

Ctrl P = play/pause
Ctrl S = Stop video
Alt Enter = full screen/windowed
Ctrl T = Repeat

F8 = mute
F9 = volume down
F10 = volume up

those are the only one's i can remember right now.
