Control iphone via Windows over Wifi?

Okay, Im on 4.1 and want to be able to plug my iphone into my home theater and then be able to skip songs, pick songs,etc from my computer...can I do this?

Ive seen a lot online about something called VNC, but I've never found a good explanation or steps on how to do it...also I prefer free for this if possible.

Thanks

Install Veency on your iPhone and then install a VNC client, like RealVNC on your desktop.

Yep, has to be jailbroken.

I'm not sure how you would do something like this without being jailbroken.

Well if all you want to do is:

,

Download Apple's free remote app. With the Remote application, you will be able to remote control iTunes using your device (no additional software needed).

Alternatively, there are many FREE media remote apps (with free computer clients) in the Apple app store.

Now if you want to have full control over your computer (i.e. remote connection to your computer), use Teamviewer. Both the app and computer client are free.

BTW, the above does not require a jailbreak. Best of luck.

I've done this, and finally figured out how to get it to work, BUT I can barley control the ipod...I can use the pause, and skip buttons on the dock, but I cannot select songs, skip songs in the ipod or select like artists and such...is that a normal issue with Veency or is there something wrong, like too much running on my computer at the time?
