  1. My Windows XP Dell pc runs M-Powered ProTools with an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card installed. The card's analog outputs drive my pair of nearfields. But I would like to have wireless volume and mute control. Can someone recommend one or more wireless remote models?

    Does your computer have an infrared port? It's a small red plastic square usually located in the rear...

    if you still can find, Griffin AirClick USB. it can be mapped to control your volume level. uses RF so it's wireless. no mute though.

    otherwise, like tmagic replied, a MCE remote will also work, but you need a USB receiver if your computer doesn't have one. i bought one set in ebay for like 20 bucks.

    But don't the MCE remotes require Vista and SP3? I can't load SP3 on my ancient Dell Dimension 8300. It will slow it down far worse than it did my Lenovo N200 3000 laptop.
