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.
