I know it's not exactly 802.11, but I didn't know where else to post it.

Anybody have any ideas about a Bluetooth PC remote control? i.e. to control Winamp & DVDs? Maybe powerpoint or something to that nature.

I've done some searching on google for Bluetooth PC Remote and didn't have much luck with that.

All I really need is a push in the right direction.

I fixed the category description to include Bluetooth. Technically it is a Wi-Fi technology.

Im not too sure about remote control. Since Bluetooth, although not a new technology, but new on implimentation in the consumer marketplace, im not sure.

Logitech seems to be a powerful driving force in bringing Bluetooth to the PC Marketplace and they have a Media Control device that operates via Bluetooth 1.1 used for controlling Winamp, Media Player, etc. Its a part of their diNovo desktop suite.

I know this question is pretty old now - but I've got some software available at http://www.lim.com.au/PuppetMaster that lets you use either sony ericscson mobiles or Java enabled bluetooth phones as a remote control to various windows programs.

Yep, that's my software.

Since I originally posted here, I've added support for a ton of extra phones - even those without bluetooth.

Danger Sidekick?

I hacked the phone a few months ago and started changing and playing around with stuff. T-Mobile locks the phone down too much and restricts a lot of its potential. Unfortunately ive succeeded in making it like a Windows machine. I have to reboot it every now and then so it doesnt randomly drop calls. haha

I know it's strange replying to a post started a year ago...But that Bluetooth remote is sweetdogs!  It can be really tempermental if you don't know what you're doing in VB or Java, but it's nice that you can make your own scripts to run on it.

Well, for what it's worth; PuppetMaster has provided Java and VBScript support ever since it's inception.

It is a lot more mature and provides a much wider range of support than bluetooth remote control.

If you check the user forums, you'll see that there are script created by other users available for download too.
