I was wondering whether anyone else would think it could make sense to have a more "complete", user-interface only on a Laptop or Tablet PC. As great as the SB remote is, it would be great to browse album art and such things on a remote device that has better graphics capabilities. The SS software itself resides only on the media server, though - I have no interest in carrying that around.

Any ideas on how such a setup may be achieved?

You mean something better than using the web-browser on a tablet to connect to http://[server IP]:9000?

Plus there's already Moose and the OrangeCD music catalogue has a slimserver plugin.

Have you tried Moose? It's a .Net application and it's a marvelous tool to control you SB! Would it be possible you missed it?
