    Greetings all,

    I currently have my Mac Mini connected to my AVR via HDMI and the AVR is connnected to my panel via HDMI.

    What I want to do is use an iPad 2 to controll my mini thus allowing me to see all of the Mini applications on the Ipad. Having access to iTunes will be super critical. I guess I want to use the iPad as a control surface and more. Can this be done with an App?

    The plan is to also purchase the Logitech Harmony Link to control my home theatre setup via the iPad as well. I want true convergence!

    Thanks to all,

    Al F

    Try Apple's Remote app. It'll give you full access to iTunes.

    If you want remote screen access (VNC), I strongly suggest Remoter VNC. It has a variety of controls, including a virtual trackpad.

    ^ Remote would work for iTunes.
    There are some some remote desktop apps
