I'm currently planning my new HTPC, I'm going to build it from scratch into a case I made myself. What I really want to do is to have specific buttons for play, rewind, stop, pause, f.forward, etc. in the front of the case. In addition to a remote, they'd control winamp, itunes, media player, or whatever. The thing is that I have no idea how to do this, or even if it is feasible. What I have considered is to take a MSI megapc, or something, and strip it down to the parts I need, but that's not really the best option for me.
Do any of you have any experience with this sort of thing? Advice, links, anything is welcomed.
In advance, thanks!
