Using Leopard with iCal, Apple Remote Desktop, and Quicktime/Keynote

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Hi,
I need to create the following 'synergy' or workflow or 'automation' between these softwares:
- iCal
- Apple Remote Desktop
- Quicktime/Keynote
This is the application:
Remotely controlling (ARD) and scheduling (iCal) several quicktime/keynote files for display (ie. playing full screen video but controlling which file is playing from home).
How can I integrate all softwares?
Extended application:
I would also like to know if Leopard or any Apple software has the capability to read serial (RS-232) commands. For example, I would like to know and/or be advised if a screen/monitor is turned off (regardless if the computer is properly displaying the content or not).
I look forward to your feedback.
Thanks,
LMB1980

It is if you are trying to stream it.
Users may want to stream their music into a third party program such as Ventrilo (as I do) to share their music (but not their libraries) with other listeners and speak on Ventrilo at the same time. You need two user profiles running Ventrilo at the same time, and two user profiles running iTunes.
When I roll over to User Profile #2 after setting up iTunes to stream into Vent in User Profile #1, iTunes stops playing. This is a recent change. It's annoying.
How do I change it?
