Let's say that I want to perform basic Windows operations such as maximize/minimize/restore/open program/etc. via a remote control? What do I need for this? Does it depend on the HTPC case, such as the VFD of the Zalman HD-160 or OrigenAE X11?
To give more details, I'll probably purchase the Zalman HD-160 case for my future HTPC but I see that the case has no drive bay to install something like the I-Mon, so I believe the only way to use a remote to drive my PC is via the case's VFD. Am I right?
This is mighty important for me, so any answers would be greatly appreciated!
