    If you used Hog2PC, you could do this thru windows remote desktop.

    Hog2PC can't send Midi notes only MSC, so you could link Hog 2PC to a full Hog 2 Console, but you could only control cue commands: go, stop, back, go to cue. It wouldn't allow you to edit channel levels, record cues etc that Midi Notes would allow.

    This gives a pretty good overview of how to set it up:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsXp/using/mobility/getstarted/Remoteintro.mspx

    It's software that comes with Windows XP, I believe Vista and 7 as well.

    Basically you're setting up the computer running Hog2PC with a widget attached as the server and then using your tablet as the client that logs into it to control it. You wouldn't run Hog2PC on the tablet only on the server side.

    Hardware-wise, you'd need the server computer, either a laptop or a desktop, with a widget attached for DMX output. And then you'd have your tablet to use as the RFU.

    Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

    Remote desktop is only available in the Professional operating systems. If you're running XP Home it won't work. You can try something like VNC instead.
