    well i got it work, pretty nice app.
    It has script support that dosent seem to work at all though, i keep getting errors etc, and others on there forum seem to be having the same issues. The mouse control is in the script support though. So for now, i have to use both pc control and FMA.

    OK,
    finally got script support to work correctly.
    I opened one of the scripts that was crashing and noticed in the header it required the version of FMA to be 0.10.31e but the version i downloaded was 0.10.31b, there was no .31e available. But if its required it must exist somewhere. So, i found the check for update option in the help menu. It downloaded .31c, after it installed it, i checked for updates again and it found more, downloaded .31d and after that it finally found .31e that i needed.

    Scripts work fine now.

    Just keep checking for updates in the help menu until there are no more updates.

    Just wanted to post another thanks to streetknight for starting this thread and eveeryone else posting links here etc. All three of the apps work pretty good, ive been testing them out all night

    a short review:

    pc control
    http://www.christersson.org/index.ph...ware_pccontrol

    very cool, and free
    works great
    If you need something simple to control winamp, move your mouse and also start up apps this is a good choice.

    FMA
    http://fma.xinium.com

    also very cool, more feature rich than pc control
    This app is good for manageing your phone, contacts, uploading files etc. its very good at this.
    Also has scripting support (make sure you have the absolute latest version of app) so you can expand it with scripts to control your pc from the phone.
    And its also Free! but could easily be sold for 30bucks or more.

    And finally

    Jeyo Remote
    http://www.jeyo.com/products/JeyoRemote.asp

    This is pretty cool also, worked as soon as i ran it, very simple layout and options. Easy to use and i was up and controling my pc with this in less than 2 minutes. But.... this was the last app i tested so im sure i worked out any connection issues i had with bluetooth before with the other 2 apps above.
    Anyway, the app works good,
    But there is one feature of this app thats worth the 15 bucks they charge for the software.
    Its the only app out of the 3 that has a command manager that basicly lets you map any key on your phone to any keyboard shortcut for any app! Now thats sweet. This can also probably be done with FMA but would require you to write the scripts or someone else who knew VBS, which i dont.
    This app also has better mouse move support than FMA, but... pc control wins hands down on the mouse move feature.

    So, over all, you cant go wrong with using either one of these apps. They all are pretty damn good, and i thought at least one of them would be a pos

    Also of note to anyone reading this,
    You will need a SonyErisson phone for any of the above apps to work.

    So far i think the best one to use as a remote for mediacar or mediaengine would be Jeyo Remote as i think you'll be able to get it working with both quicker than FMA.
    I havent tried to control mediaengine (dont use mediacar) but since both support keyboard shourtcuts it should be straightforward to control both of them with Jeyo Remote.
    FMA control could/should be able to work if someone wrote a script for them. I wonder if FMA can be used with Girder, that would be ideal that way it just expands its use to many other devices and setups.

    Off to test these out with media engine.
    more later...

    well it works pretty good with media engine,
    you can either set it to send keypresses to mediaengine or since media engine controls winamp, you can also use the winamp control and the effect is the same while media engine is running.

    FMA also has winamp control so im going to see how well it works with mediaengine.

    i feel like i just got a new phone

    well FMA dosent get along with media engine too well, it kind of works but really dosent. FMA wants to start winamp first and since mediaengine is allready running it detects it cant start winamp (i have winamp set to only allow one instance running) so basicly its a no go (initially). There may be other options to get FMA to control media engine. I think the best route will be to just have standard keymapping support and control the keyboard with the phone, and thus any other app you please. Im gonna do some more searching around on there forum and see if anyone has written a keybord script for FMA, if so were golden.
