    I use this as well. PhonemyPC is great for accessing your computer when you're not there. But if the OP has his PC linked to his/her TV and just wants to control wirelessly, gmote is the way to go. The screen works as a touch pad mouse, and the keyboard is used for text input.

    I have the same set up as the OP.
    My PC is at my desk, with my monitor on the desk. It's only a 19" monitor so being able to see it from across the room isn't happening..... so I hooked up an S-video cable from my PC to my TV, which I can see from across the room. So should I feel lazy, like laying around, I can use my PC with my TV as a display. I do have a wireless mouse and keyboard, so I just use those, but you can turn your Droid into a wireless keyboard/mouse and use your PC from across the room, all while displaying on your TV.

    Connect Droid will give you great telnet/ssh capabilities if your computer is capable of handling those.

    I use mine as a extra remote for my media pc. My wife does the same with her Droid.

    I have a full size wireless mouse and keyboard, but it is sometimes on the other side of the room, or the mouse has been eaten by the couch. My droid however is always close at hand.

    It could also serve as a presentation remote in a pinch, like if you hook up your laptop to the projector, you could then use your phone to navigate/ go to next slide.
