Media Center Remote
The Media Center Remote app along with the corresponding Media Center Remote Command Listener can control your Windows Media Center computer and extenders over the WiFi in your house. You can browse your Music, Picture, and Video libraries on your phone. Search for songs, artists, and albums to Play or Queue or browse your collections as well as playlists to play on your Media Center. You can also Play pictures and picture albums, or videos. The WP7 app also provides the ability to control basic functions like Play, Stop, Previous, and Next, along with Volume and Channel control. You can control the interface from your phone using directional buttons or a gesture pad to 'swipe' through the menus. There is also remote keyboard functionality. Extenders such as the Xbox 360 are also supported! A Windows Media Center Add-in must be installed in order to use this app. The Add-in installer and app user guide can be found at www.TheMediaCenterProject.com. You must download Media Center Remote Command Listener version 5.0.0 for this version! New in 3.0 is the ability to autodiscover Media Center computers and Extenders on the network.More

Have some trouble with a large media collection, but other then that done really well. Gestures and speech features are a lot of funMore
Works really well for my needs. Use a Xbox 360 exteder connected to my audio system with speakers on my deck. I can controll and listen to my MC music collection with the extender and TV off from my deck. Loading App - takes 3 seconds; works with my PC MediaCenter and Xbox MC Extender. Loading Music - takes about 20 seconds (about 5,500 songs tagged); music needs to load each time app is started; queuing and playing works great. Loading Pictures - takes about 5 seconds to load initial preview image page, paging takes less than 1 second to refesh with preview image; needs sort by tags defined and date option Loading Videos - takes about 5 seconds to load first page of videos, paging less than 1 seconds; no preview image; wouldn't let me start Recorded TV displayed in list; needs sort by date option Remote Control - works great; small lag Mouse - work good; small lag; hard to place finger in touch screen and look up at results each time Keyboard - works perfectMore
Good app and developer got right back to me until it worked. It does lag and you have to set phone screen lock to always on because when you unlock you have to start over with finding extender or computer. If you have a huge collection it takes forever but other than that great app but like everything else you have to take good with bad. I know the developer will get it perfect because he actually cares about what he's doing. Highly recommendedMore
Some problems: Connects to Media center by IP instead of NetBIOS Hostname, which means the average PC on DHCP will change over time, causing one to have to lookup the IP every 8 days. It also has to re-establish the connection after unlock, which I suspect could be corrected with background processing after the NoDo update. Great interface though. Haven't tried on my 360 Extender yet...More
I've had a few issues getting things to work properly on the pc side but the developer has been extremely responsive over email and has released new versions to address my issues. This app isn't quite there yet but its getting close. Looking forward to updates.More
Not working consistentlyMore
Super cool app, must have if you use WMC; works on WP8 as well, although required a restart of my phone after install to find my wireless connection.More
Cannot connect to media center. Not sure what method this app is using. It would be nice telling what I need to do on my part to make this work.More
Works as advertised, the app could use more instructions or at least a link to the websiteMore
