    Default I am an Android noob! Please help!

    Hello there.

    I just bought my mum and dad a new media player for the living room.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...r-21&m1k=vb_ac
    This is a great wee tool for them to watch movies tv shows etc

    Problem is the remote is a bit crap. it can take a mouse but my family would be picky about that.

    Now they have a Samsung G 2 tablet and I was wondering if there was a program or app to install on both devices to control the media player via the tablet. the media device looks so much like the tablet so its just 1 click 2 click if i knew the app to install.

    Can anyone help or any advice please.

    Thank you in advance

    Welcome to Android Central! You might consider this: Amazon.com: Motorola Bluetooth Smart Controller for Android - Bluetooth Headset - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories. If you pair it with the media device, it might work better as a control. It essentially acts like a touchpad.

    I think either a miracast or Samsung's AllShare might be worth looking into.

    Did a quick Google search, found this: AirPlay/DLNA Receiver. Give it a go.

    There's an app called splashtop search for it in the playstore and see if that's what your looking for....

    Perhaps there is a program on the Play Store similar to the HTC's remote app
