So I've tried searching around various websites to find a way to do this, but I've not had any luck yet. My current set up has a macmini running OSX 10.7 attached to the TV via HDMI. We use it for media and things like that. I also have a macbook running OSX10.6, and a windows 7 pc. What I want to be able to do is remote login from the macbook with a GUI and be able to run various programs, while the macmini is running netflix or something else. When I try using screen sharing all I can do is get a mirror of what's on the TV. I had ARD suggested, but it's 80$... I rather find a free way to do this. Does anyone have a suggestion?
