If you monitor the client service logs on the client machines when you are firing off commands via MLS, you should see the commands being executed at the client. Fire the commands directly from MLS for now; get it working there, then introduce a touchscreen. Take small steps and you will locate the issue. If you are not seeing the commands in the client service log at the client, then something is not configured correctly.
First, I am not trying to use a touchscreen. I am trying to get the server to send the commands to the correct remote client, one of which is the local machine that mlserver is running on. If I define more than 1 remote client (pc running mllobby and a dvd softplayer), mlserver sends the command to only 1 of the remote clients. I can send commands using the override feature under the movie tab or the send command option from the server interface and it works correctly, as long as I define the remote client alias.
