Starting placeshifter from command line... no keyboard/mouse input

I've been using the Placeshifter commandline option for years (to automatically connect to my server).

I just tried this on a new PC with win7 64bit (java32/java64 installed).

Something is preventing placeshifter (when started from commandline) from responding to keyboard/mouse input. The sageTV user interface loads up fine; showing everything I'm supposed to see.

If I start SageTVPlaceshifter.exe directly, I dont have this issue. So, something is happening differently with the commandline method.

Commandline: (no mouse/keyboard input)
javaw -cp MiniClient.jar;jogl.jar;gluegen-rt.jar sage.miniclient.MiniClient SERVERIP

SageTVPlaceshifter.exe (no problems)

It used to work on my PC via commandline. Something changed. The only thing I can think of was installing Java64bit.
EDIT: I just see the below error in the placeshifter commandline debug log over and over again
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:\Program Files (x86)\SageTV\Placeshifter\SageTVWin32.dll: Can't load IA 32-bit .dll ona AMD 64-bit platform

I'm not sure how to tell Placeshifter to ONLY use Java32, not Java64.

Instead of just javaw you could give it the path to the 32 bit version on your command line.

So for instance:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe -cp MiniClient.jar;jogl.jar;gluegen-rt.jar sage.miniclient.MiniClient SERVERIP

There might be other ways but that should work.

Does this still work? I tried the command listed in post 2 and Placeshifter displays the splash screen and goes no further.
