There is another Windows Phone 7 Media Center Remote in development,  this one is the developers first go at Windows Phone 7 development and looks really nice (as do most Windows Phone apps). The new application currently fully supports x64 and partially supports x86 and has some nice features, the developer is looking for feedback and lets hope there is a demo available soon
