i've had another programm on my PPC once. (a time before MP actually (-; )
it was really simple you can make your own "skin" with pictures, buttons, scrollboxes, mousepads and everything and assign it with specific keys which were sent to the pc via WiFi, bluetooth or whatever the connection between the devices would be.
i forgot the name but i'm searching it right now beacause you brought back the idea to use this with MP. i will post it here when i found it.
the advantage is, that you can make the "remote" look like you want and give it the functions you want with simulating any keystroke you want and even control the mouse!
(oh man now i really need to find that program)
smnnekho said:nevertheless there ARE thinkable reasons beacause
1) at least with the software mentioned by me, you can design it exatly the way you want, and it is already capable of controlling all functions in MP either with keystrokes or the mouse. (you can't show any filelisting from your htpc on your ppc though, thats right)
2) with this single remote you also can control third party software, which is very important for me as i have a bunch of them in use in Myprograms, like emus, different websites showing up in kiosque-mode, powerpoints, some other players, karaoke software etc etc etc. i have it all in ONE remote
