I have an ICS tablet with HDMI output. I want to use it as a media center connected to my TV, but it would be ideal if I could control it without having to go back and forth from the couch. I have a laptop and an android phone. I'm looking for suggestions on how to control the tablet remotely.
My ideal usage is being able to play videos, pause, select new media, watch online videos (youtube, vimeo, etc) and listen to music (hype machine, soundcloud, bandcamp, etc), as well as use music and video apps.
