There may be a better way of doing this - if so, please post your suggestions

There are a number of functions I'd like the iPronto to preform -

Access to my Sky+ browser when not sat infornt of the TV
Access to MP3 files stored on my PC to make the iPronto the front-end of an MP3 jukebox

I've been looking at remote PC access as this would also enable me to schedule Sky+ programmes to record when I'm away from home via friend's/family's computers

The (very crude) method I'd thought of for this was to leave a cheap, server style PC hooked up to my broadband connection 24hrs with a video input running so I could use the iPronto's browser to log onto my remote access site and open a window to display whatever's being output by the Sky+ box at the time

Two questions -

i. Will I run into problems with this ? (are there certain formats which the iPronto browser can't handle - I noticed it doesn't like my wireless routers setup page) :-/

ii. Can you run NetX commands from a PC ? (if the iPronto isn't available)
