    I contacted VNC about this and here is the question and reply:

    VNC:
    Currently you cannot perform this but we are looking in to for a future release

    Sounds like in the future you may be able to do this without jailbreaking your device, I hope so anyway.

    There's an app for that!

    Hi all,

    Sorry to hijack the thread but thought it appropriate as we've just released an app that does exactly what you're after.

    It's called Movie Remote Kids and aimed at the parent/child market to allow kids to watch movies in the back of the car and Mum or Dad be in control on the front.

    Have a look on the app store and let us know what you think?

    Thanks for the feedback. The market we're aiming this at is more the mobile scenario where AirPlay wouldnt be applicable. That said we're looking into all possibilities for future releases and products. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get updates.

    Thanks.

    AirServer - Bring AirPlay and AirTunes to your Mac

    http://www.airserverapp.com/?cat=4

    i think this is worth a look.
    and only one device need it running.

    i have it installed on my macbook air(always enabled), so on my iphone or ipad etc etc, i press the airplay tab next to play/pause, and my macbook will be listed under airplay devices.

    if i have it running on my mac, ipad and apple tv, they all would show up under airplay menu, choose one and it will start playing right away.
    video works good with sound. i didn't test any apps at time of this posting, although i had this for a bit...

    wow

    Just downloaded tunesremote on my ipad2 and iphone 3GS and after a bit of searching on bluetooth i was able to get them to see each other! What an amazingly simple concept, so glad I found this thread! Download it, it's worth the money!

    If you're unfamiliar with VNC - it's basically a cross platform server/client install that enables remote desktop control. At first it was for PC OSes like Linux, windows and Mac. And it's been ported over to iOS.. this is wat you'd need(once ipad2 is jb'd!)

    I am now using Tango remote, works great and uses wifi or BT for a connection. Having the the ability to control what my daughter is whaling from the front seat is great. No more pulling over!
