Default Using an Android tablet as a keyboard/touchpad?

Just dropped Windows 8 on my HTPC. Was wondering if there's a good app that will convert my tablet into a touchpad and keyboard to control the HTPC. Anyone ever do this?

Don't think so. I don't want to connect via RDP and look at the GUI on the tablet. I want to use the tablet as a keyboard and touchpad while looking at the TV screen. Not sure if that's clear.

I did find this, but it's kinda buggy. Worked great before I restarted and then the mouse controls went all screwy.



Will troubleshoot later but I was hoping someone had already done this with their setup and might have suggestions.

So much win, thank you!

Question though, is there a way to send Win key or Shift+Win key with the basic remote?

Now what i'm looking to do personally.

Is an app that I can control my Transformer Inifinty tablet with my phone.

So say I have the tablet hooked up to a TV, and then sit back and control my tablet with my phone.

I prefer a remote control myself. I use a logitech harmony 650 with eventghost.

I already have a physical keyboard and Harmony remote, wanted something smaller and with an accurate touch pad.
