I have a Samsung ES8000 smart tv. I know there are remote control apps that enable users to use their phones and tablets to control the tv. I was wondering if there is a similar app for computers? I have an old PowerBook mac, and would love to use it to turn on/off my cable box, and switch channels using my comp (it has bluetooth). Is there an app that allows this?

I can see at least one point, to be able to use the laptop's keyboard rather than the clumsy point and click on screen keypad. Any ideas?

Sure I've seen mention on the interweb that you can plug a USB keyboard and mouse into these TVs?
