Its been a quiet week on the Media Center news front, so it was good to see Chris Lanier post on a new tool for remote controlling Media Center via another PC
Ryan Tollefson over at The Green Button has created my new favorite application for Media Center. MCE Virtual Remote uses Charile Kindel’s MCE Controller to create a virtual software remote that you can use for basic controller of your Media Center.
If you are like me, and always have a laptop (or a tablet) in front of your face while sitting on the couch this is must have software. I always seem to lose my actual remotes, and this is the best backup I can have. Another great use, and while Ryan developed it is to use it with a UMPC.
I have a UMPC so it looks like this would be a nice app for me.
