New use for my V5… HTPC?

So it suddenly occurred to me that if I hook my V5 (which now has Windows 7 on it) up to my TV I can watch shows that I have recorded on my desktop (which has a TV capture card). Cool! I just switched the usb dongle and remote that came with the card (and which I never use ’cause I just watch the shows on my monitor with my keyboard and mouse sitting in front of me) over to the V5 and voila. Now, of course, I want a fancy schmancy wireless keyboard to use from my viewing location… like… the Logitech diNovo Mini ($120 from Amazon). Oh, and there is a bit of a hack to get Hulu desktop to run from Media Center.
