Hi I wonder if any one can help me with my current setup

Geniatech Digistar DVB-S PCI
Windows Vista Home Premium (OEM)
DVB Dream
ProgDVD 4.xx ( came with PCI Card )
ASUS ATI HD2600 graphics
Gigabyte X48 Motherboard
Q6600 processor
Jaycar reader on COM1 Header with 17xxx card

The problem I am having is using DVB Dream I am unable to use the remote that is included with this PCI card everything else I am happy with I takes a little time to change all channel properties to default to CAID 0969 instead of 096A but all sky channels I subscribe to work fine had audio issues on some channels like animal planet bbc world and others but they are now sorted as well

I can use the remote with ProgDVB but have other issues with decoding sky channels and NDS cam causing ProgDVB to nearly always crash

Some solutions I tried was moving the associated files from ProgDVB to DVB Dream folders but when starting remote from this folder I get a message saying MaySample application has failes ( or similar ) files I have moved are WinLirc.module  )and renamed it to .mod for DVB Dream ), Remote, killRemote control.ini and rmcard from the ProgDVD folder to DVB Dream folder

Has anyone any other solution I have done some reading on WinLirc and there are devices for serial to IRdA but I have used my only serial port for the jaycar reader

But I am not sure if ProgDVB uses WinLirc as its default remote anyway 

Please help its the final hurdle ( apart from the slight 10 sec glitch )
