If you have one of our mini home theatre PCs like the T11, W8 Pro or W10 Pro that run Windows, we think you may find this post of interest.

Unified Remote is a two part system to remote control your PC from another device.

On your Windows based DroiX Mini PC you install the server software, available from https://www.unifiedremote.com/download/windows . Clicking that link will download the installer automatically. Check your Downloads folder or the toolbar and bottom of your browser for the file to open.

If you have an Android powered tablet or smartphone you can download the free version of their remote control client app from Unified Remote at https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Unified+Intents .
The full version for the Android remote control client app is under £5 and gives you a lot more prebuilt remotes, the ability to create custom remotes, widgets for your phone or tablet’s homescreen, voice control(!) and infrared, NFC and Android Wear integration.

If you have an iPhone or iPad (not tested, but the iPod Touch 5th gen or later may work as well) then https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/unified-remote/id825534179?mt=8 has details of the applications.

Windows Phone also has a client app at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/p/unified-remote/9nblggh083jx abc
