Muckster, your situation is a bit different. But your setup from what i can understand:
Downstairs: HTPC (no display?)
Upstairs: Samsung LCD
Which graphics card in the HTPC? Are you going to want to view both displays at the same time? There are some wireless HDMI devices out there, but they all have their sacrifices or high prices.
For controlling the HTPC, you'll want something IP based (think wifi) which can be really simple. If you want fancy, you can get an iPAD and something like MyMovies plugin app for it which now has a pretty sweet Media Center Remote feature. Otherwise, there are literally dozens of Media Center control apps for an iphone/ipod touch that would allow you to control your setup via wireless (instead of RF/IR)
