Remote control a sdl application


I’m programming my own “MP3-Box-on-LowEnd-PC-for-TV” application, currently
developing it for WinXP with SDL (under Dev-C++).

For remote control I try to use the remote of my TV-Card and the Girder software
to translate the RC input into keyboard commands for my SDL application.

The RC and Girder itself work fine - control for myHTPC works and simple
Keyboard-Cursor-Input e.g. in the windows explorer works either.

But the sdl app just doesn’t seem to catch any of the translated keyboard input.

Any idea how I could get this to work or any other solutions for using a remote
control in a sdl application?

Thanks for any help.
