    I just found out that you can use Logmein to remote control your PC from Google TV. It works because it uses flash.

    One problem I've found: It seems that since Android doesn't support right clicking I can't right click in my remote pc connection. Too bad long left click doesn't act like a right click ...that would be the solution I would like recommend to Google to implement in Chrome.

    I would think that the quality of video would probably suffer since it has to run through LogMeIn's servers first.

    I think there are some VNC clients that run over HTTP inside of a flash window, deployed from the VNC Server...

    Tried this but unfortunately it didn't work for me. When I tried logging into my LogMeIn account with Google TV my computer didn't show up on the list when I I clicked "My Computers". I'm trying to log into a Mac if that makes any difference. Did Hulu find this loophole already and squash this workaround too or am I doing something wrong?

    I'm guessing you didn't take the steps to install the LogMeIn software and configure it. Don't bother trying to use a remote control service like LogMeIn or VNC to try and watch videos. The video is never smooth if you can get it working anyway. The video renderer just can't keep up. You're better off using a program like PlayOn or TVersity Pro in order to transcode the video to your Google TV device. Unfortunately, if you have a Mac, you'll need to use a VMware Fusion or Parallels Desktop in order to run it within a virtual Windows machine.

    I've never seen a remote desktop platform that can stream images at the rate you'd need to watch video. Be glad to hear about them if they're out there though.

    I won't be satisfied until splashtop is out for it.. then I can play my PC games across the network with it.

    How exactly can you play PC games on Google TV even if you can access PC on Google TV? I mean can you connect your keyboard or mice or some other controller?

    That's interesting. I haven't tried this. Controlling your PC from a remote place using Google TV is something new. But I am not sure where else long left click acts like a right click? Also, I recommend you to check the settings and configurations on the LogMeIn software.
