thanks to both replies
im intrigued about using windows as an orbiter.
this means ill get the LinuxMCE interface on my computer without having to reboot or re-install my OS?
and retain the same functionality?
Well there are two general types of ORbiters. One is called "on screen" Orbiter and runs on Media Director. Another is just plain Orbiter that runs on Windows also. The main difference is that "on screen" Orbiter is capable of playing media and has embedded softphone and the second is more like a "remote control" screen for those on MDs.
oh right, so i can get the "on screen" orbiter on my windows PC and have the other orbiter type on my Nokia N770 to control it?
is there anyway the menus wouldnt show up on the PC if im using a remote? that would be a pretty neat feature
