    looking for recommendations on access your home pc remotely with the tablet

    As you know home premium does not supprot remote access - needs other 3rd party solutions to do it (VNC etc.)

    I have been successful to connect via Teamviewer without needing to install VNC - but the visual quality could be better -

    so putting it out there to see if anyone has an alternative working solution (with or without VNC)

    I'm using Teamviewer as well but there is several other options mentioned over at XDA

    I use TightVNC server and AndroidVNC client app but there is probably something better now a days. Haven't used anything on my NC yet.

    I use the same combination. I also tried PocketCloud (free) from Wyse (yes, that Wyse - think amber terminals connected to the mainframe by a telephone cord). It works, but didn't do what I needed to.

    logmein rocks, and is free for pc (with a pro version that rocks even harder) but the android app is like $30US. Otherwise I'd be all over that. Judging by the quality of their pc offering (excellent scaling and on-the-fly resolution changes), I bet it's good though.
