collect3 mobile - XBMC Remote
Something like that?
Assuming you media box is a mini PC running XBMC of course
I've been thinking about setting up a little media box to connect to the TV's around the house. From our sky box, we've got a hdmi splitter going to all the TV's in the house. So i was thinking if i put a hdmi switch before hand i could switch between the sky and the pc. Now for the sky we use the magic eyes so the remotes work everywhere. Need to come up with a similar solution for the PC, now both myself and my wife have iphones and my wife is very used to using her iphone to control the sonos setup we've got for music. So essentially I'm after a nice front end that will easily allow movies/tv series stored on the server to be selected using an iphone as the controller. Don't really want to go down the RDP route, would like something a little more 'sonos' like, so yo could pick the movie without even looking at the TV.
Any thoughts or suggestions???

That looks like it will do the job quite nicely!
Hadn't decided on software as i didn't want to limit the control, which to me i think will be the most important factor. Not played with XMBC for a few years, ran it on a old apple tv and found it a little painful!!
