Is there a bluetooth remote control for my PC?

Hi

I currently have a RF(?) remote control for my HTPC that not only does my Windows Media Centre controls, but also has a little trackball on top so I can control the mouse. It's a great idea, but not very reliable as it seizes up all the time and the buttons often don't respond. It didn't have a driver, so I'm guessing I can't update it. Plus, I suspect it's RF interference. Does anyone know of a bluetooth equivalent? Failing that - could I use my HTC Hero to do the same job?

Thanks in advance :D

If you stated the make and model of your existing device then someone would no doubt be able to track down a driver for you.

There are two apps I have on my IPhone that allows for control of a PC over bluetooth, and a mouse/trackball controller too if you have an Iphone.
