I have a media box that’s hooked up to my TV. I’ve been using VNC to control it from my laptop while sitting on the couch, but that’s not ideal for a few reasons, mostly that my media box is kinda old and slow, and VNC pretty much chokes when you’ve got full-screen high motion video running. It doesn’t update on my laptop and the server runs slower because it’s trying to do too much.
I realized that what I really need is an app that will forward my keyboard/mouse data to the media box, but not bother sending video over the network. I can just look at the image on the TV.
Is there anything like that? I’m running Windows XP on the media PC and my laptop is a Macbook.
