I've got the mini hooked up to a projector, which is great for watching super-big movies, but not so great for if you just want to see what song you're listening to. I've been trying to get my old Palm Zire71 to run VNC, which is a beautiful thing when it works, but it seems to cut out after 10-15 minutes. I'm using TCP-USB Bridge and pppd in the terminal, and I barely know what I'm doing. Missing Sync might help, or getting a WiFi card for the palm, but I was hoping to do it for free. Anyone want to chime in? Anyone else thinking of a big screen/little screen solution?

Hi, I see the Palm 71 has Bluetooth. You could try using Salling Clicker - this is a useful program which provides remote control functions on your Palm, including full control and track information in iTunes. http://homepage.mac.com/jonassalling/Shareware/index.html

I dunno, maybe the Zire 72 has bluetooth, but the 71 does not.
