    Is there any way the trackpad is usable for Plex on a HTPC?

    If you can use Plex with a regular mouse... then of course.

    You pretty much navigate Plex with the arrow keys, so the Magic Trackpad is probably not ideal.

    I use the magic trackpad with Plex sometimes.
    I mapped the arrow keys for plex with jitouch.
    One-Fix, Right-Tap for the right arrow key, for advancing the movie etc.
    three finger tap for pause. Drawing an M for the menu, C for escape.
    The hard thing is to find the most intuitive function-gesture pairing.
