    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7


    Remote Mouse kind of tells you where you are, on the device... But it doesn't cover the other things you want to do.

    PC Remote does, but it's Windows 8 Only for now, plus you can't SEE what's on the remote PC.

    Have you thought about HippoRemote? It has specific controllers for each app you are controlling.

    No specific controller for individual web pages.

    In Mobile Mouse, the controls show up when they are in the main window.

    Sounds like you need something like Teamviewer but that you can actually SEE. But the problem with those kinds of Remotes, is that they take over the whole system, so it ruins any media playback.

    We need something that has the visibility features of TViewer, but won't interfere like Mobile Mouse. My own solution has been to use Mobile Mouse, VLC Remote, VLC Streamer, VLC Amigo, WMPremote, Windows 8 Mouse, Plex, and HippoRemote, I use each one for a specific program.

    Glad you like the Chromecast. It should get even better when Google ships the final version of the SDK and opens things up for 3rd party developers.
