Maybe you remember my previous posting about the highpad Media Control software development for Pocket PCs which lets you remote control your Windows Media Center Edition and way more from your Pocket PC?

highpad Media Control is designed to work with any Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC, wirelessly connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or GPRS and UMTS to control your networked Windows XP Media Center 2005 or XP Media Player.

The GUI allows you to simply control and access your networked Media Center PC and content via your Pocket PC's touch-screen. Wirelessly navigate through all digital media on your home server. Instantly select out of your media libraries your entertainment program of choice.


  • Intuitive, simple and easy to use interface
  • Shuttle-wheel for touch screen use
  • Soft keys for non-touch screen devises
  • Control all MCE2005 functions
  • Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity
  • Stream, download and synchronize your media library at home or on the move
  • Manage your playback and play lists
  • Playback music, radio, video and pictures
  • Remote recording of Radio and TV
  • Electronic Program Guide (EPG)
  • Customize your device with Plug-ins

highpad Media Control is now available in German and English from high-def for 29.99 Euro and as said, it's available in German and English. A trial version isn't available yet.
A review of highpad Media Control will follow soon. Surprisingly just today my new Windows Media Center Edition 2005 arrived so I can review it on the latest hard- and software.

Cheers ~ Arne

This is cool. I'm going to give it a try. I found that ORB did not stream radio broadcasts, only internet radio. Now I should be able to catch the end of my favourite radio shows on the ride into work in the morning.

Yeah, indeed it is pretty feature rich! I've tested all the functions yesterday including remote control via Wi-Fi and remote access and streaming from my Xda mini (HTC Magician) via W-LAN to the o2 UMTS Surf@home box via UMTS to my MCE and it was extremely easy to use and fast. I've streamed a couple of videos, radio stations and music files when I was on the balcony at my girlfriend even she (she love gadgets too but isn't half such a geek like I) was amazed. wink
