Android remote is a web server based remote for the MediaPortal. On top of just controlling the MP as any remote you can browse you pictures or music from the database. The data can be transfered to the phone or you can play the MP3 directly on your phone. In the video section you can browse you files and stream those to the phone.
For more details read the thread. This is only the installer for the web server.
Grab the file for the Android from here or use the barcode to get it:

However, on a tablet it still only shows up at phone dimensions. plus in landscape it is really small and some features are clipped with no way to scroll. In portrait it fits much better, but still uses very little of the available space.
Keep up the goodwork.
However the photo quality is not good, and it don't want to play my HD films on my phone.
This has been a great use for my old HTC Magic phone that was too slow for "real" use!
i got fed up and installed Unified Remote from android market. Ive tried a couple of remote control devices since, but it is by far the best. there is still point and clicking, but the versatility it showed is worth it for the remote\htpc experience. as matter of fact, i´m using it to post this right now.
Other than that it is very fast and easy to set up.
It would be excellent if it is was possible to map the buttons and/or change the graphics/icons for the buttons.
Oh, what does the Android button do?
Great attempt :-)
