Hi Mark,

I have been playing with XMBC on a Raspberry Pi and have got a Tesco 
Hudl working as my remote. You can download the official XBMC remote 
control app from the Google Play store. It works over your LAN, but 
you'll need to manually configure the Android app with the IP address of 
your XMBC machine as there's no auto-scan.
