I have an HTPC running win 7 connected to my TV in the living room. When guests are over its on for spotify/DVD/media center. I have a cheap Bluetooth qwerty keyboard that's about the size of my phone that has a touch pad. It works ok, its just not ideal. The bluetooth is very weak, its small its just a stop gap. I want to control the PC like a pro. What is the best way to control my htpc?

I don't own an ipad but I will be buying one soon. I also will be buying a kinect soon, if this helps.

I want the best keyboard/mouse htpc controller on the market. I just don't want to buy another "sort-of-ok" option. Thank-you

MobileMouse is the best I've ever seen, by far. It was a whopping $2 last time I checked. But it beats the heck out of an any wireless keyboard/mouse I've ever used.

Much appreciated for the link bother!

While at one time I lived in our computer room... As maturity sets in its more of a chore to go down there... Thanks to hdmi over cat5/6 and this little gem I can now use my iMac from the comfort of the living room! Although the slight step down in resolution might take some getting used to... 1080p seems so nice but 2560 by 1440 is even nicer.
