Do you mean a graphic interface that you run on another PC ?
If so, I'm also thinking of this. Actually I would like to use my laptop+IR 
transmitter (or wireless LAN) to build something similar like the Philips 
pronto remote control (only with a larger screen). 
So far I have not gotten any further than a plan due to lack of time though, 
but I defenately think that for a home theater some old laptops could do 
quite a good service for this purpose (specially when adding a touch screen). 
I didn't find any package that can do this already. If someone knows 
anythings, please let me know.
