    I am thinking of moving from my Apple TV to a Dell Zino HD to allow for a more robust HTPC. However, I plan to keep using iTunes as my primary source for renting movies, etc, and want to make sure that I have a solution to view my movies and control playback from the comfort of my couch.

    Does anyone know of a Frontrow type app for Windows that will allow you to control iTunes content?

    Thanks!

    Are you looking for a remote or media management?

    Well, both, really. My question is what software-media management/media center. But I'll have to find a remote that will work with it as well- I was kind of hoping to just use a "standard" media center remote.

    iTunes tends to only play nice with itself and other Apple software. The management end is pretty much limited to that and more so for video content.

    On the remote side most keyboards with media keys and remotes can pipe commands for basic playback control of iTunes.
