    How possible, or impossible, is it to make an app that make the Pixi and Pre function as a wireless keyboard and touchpad? Something like this: EFO iPazzPort Keyboard looks like a BlackBerry, calls your HTPC instead of your boss -- Engadget

    Maybe there's already an app for that, who knows?

    Thanks.

    There was an app built by somebody that worked on Windows PCs, but I do not remember the name. It requires a WiFI connection and desktop software, so if your HTPC is a Windows based system, you should be fine.

    There's an app in Preware that allows you to use your phone as a keypad for your home security system. So sounds like it might be possible.

    Well that one is for a specific home security system.

    Just like there is an app for Boxee (a remote of sorts).

    So basically, as long as the HTPC is Windows based, the OP can get the app in the App Catalog and use that. If it is Linux/Mac based, they must wait for an app that has a program for use on that system.

    If it is a generic (not a custom-built) HTPC, then the OPs best bet is to post the make and model so someone here can see if an API is available to provide keyboard/mouse input (which there probably isn't).
