PC remotes?

#1Sephiroth311Posted 8/16/2013 8:01:38 AM
I'm in the process of building a new gaming PC which will also serve as my home theatre. I'm going to set it up so that I have the PC in the corner of the room as a standard setup with a monitor, keyboard and mouse so that I can play games without controller support but I primarily want it running through my TV via an extra long HDMI cable.

I don't really want to have to keep getting up to use the keyboard and mouse so when I'm running through the TV are there many options in the PC remotes line? If so what are the best options? Can you use the Logitech harmony with PC's?

Logitech remote will work or you can get a wireless keyboard with touchpad

I already have a wireless keyboard and mouse but the signal isn't great, you can't be more than a few feet away. Besides when I'm running it through the TV I'll only be using Steam and media player so I wont need a keyboard for anything.

I have an iPhone if there is a decent app?

I settled on a logitech k400 for mine, couldn't be happier with it.
