Simple question

Set up my mp with aero, took me a week but so worth it

I want to use my iPhone as remote for videos and music, I don't use it for tv at all

What's the best software/app I need to make this happen

Thanks

    I have to agree with the auther;)

    iPiMP is a very good nice, useful plugin.
    And it's not a plugin for the Ipod/Iphone, just a webpage in Safari
    Using it every day...

    And the support is very good.

    iPiMP lets you browse your music playlists and video database and play them on your client. Further music functionality will be added soon.

    If iPimp isn't what you are looking for, you could just set up a VNC server and use any of the iPhone VNC viewer software to control your whole pc.

    MP1 MP2 Odd Standby issue DE
    Since I played around with all the settings as per the previous posts and despite putting everything back to how it was, as far as I can tell, now when my HTPC wakes up to make a recording it no longer does so in away mode. I will probably do a restore from a backup in the hope that that will resolve the issue.:mad:
