Remote Potato is an app for Media Center that provides access to common Media Center functions as well as access to your data in a variety of ways.
Remote Potato was originally created as a beta software that very quickly went through a series of technical previews and delivered feature after feature that caught many forum watchers by surprise at The original green button site. The software quickly morphed into a very feature full client server platform that provides flexible access to a media collection. The initial client access provided sliver light and HTML options for viewing information and several additional apps have been created on android, iOS, and WP7 platforms. Additionally, the app grew to support media streaming and many advanced TV capabilities including full guide data and recording options to set schedules outside of Media Center.
Remote Potato is supported by it's developer, Carlos at http://www.remotepotato.com and the forums at http://forums.fatattitude.com. Development continues to be well supported with new features as of this update (June 2011).
