    Can anyone say if the Surface RT can be controlled by a remote desktop app for a windows phone? I've got a Lumia 920. - If yes, which app is best?

    Wanted to watch some videos from the Surface which we had connected to the TV, but got annoyed with constantly getting up between videos.

    No, Windows RT can only connect to remote clients, it cannot serve as one

    Windows RT and Windows 8 devices cannot be controlled remotely. Only machines with Windows 8 Pro installed have the option.

    I use my Surface RT sometimes for PowerPoint presentations. I'm not always able to sit near the Surface, so I just use my Bluetooth mouse (you could also use a normal wireless mouse) to control the Surface. The range is pretty good. So you could get a track pad mouse or similar and just have it sitting next to you like a remote.

    I have been able to do this with old Sony Ericsson phones without installing software on the PC side. How ironic.
