Large-button controls for iTunes on desktop mac?

Can't believe I've had such trouble finding a set of larger 'big button' controls for itunes. I'm using iDisplay and an Android tablet to declutter my screen, but the lowest-resolution option for the tablet in iDisplay still makes things [and in particular the iTunes mini player] unusably small when dragged onto the tablet screen.

IDisplay offers a zoom function which works... kind of, but the design of the miniplayer is the real problem here. Artwork is lovely and all, but the button I'm jabbing away at is tiny. What I want is a set of controls that might scale up to more or less fill the 1280x736 tablet screen.
[Alternatives I've tried:
- Remote For iTunes works nicely on the tablet but isn't the iDisplay solution I'd like.
- I've looked at a couple of web-based controllers (because they scale) eg browserTunes, but they drop their connection to :8080 too frequently to be any use.
- Keyboard control. Works fine, but they aren't helping me to play with my new toys (ie iDisplay and the tablet in its new disguise as an extra screen for my Mac. (which is OS X 10.3.9, by the way)
Really I'd have imagined that someone would have put together a package of controls for iTunes users with a visual impairment that would've worked a treat. I can't find it though.
