I just got a Samsung Galaxy S3, and I can't think of a better use for my old Galaxy S than tucking it away on a shelf with an audio cable hooked up to my a/v receiver, streaming music from my desktop upstairs. All this works fine, but I have to jump up and down to control what gets played. Now I want the ability to control the music from my new phone, so it's always a pocket away.
I currently use, ugh, I think it's iMediaShare Lite on the old phone, and it streams great using DLNA with either tversity or windows media player on my desktop. Now I just need a way to control it from the other phone. Is there a combination of apps that lets me do this?
I've looked into XBMC and stuff, but it doesn't seem to run well yet on android, and all the XBMC remotes seem to operate like regular TV remotes; they assume you're looking at a screen, so they don't offer song picking abilities directly on the remote app screen.
