. There is a large thread here on AVS about iRule. You can even setup custom pages to control JRiver if you want something different than JRemote.
There are thousands of iPad mounts. Just find one you like. Some mounts are docks and provide charging and you can rotate the iPad. Monoprice even sells iPad mounts.
Why do you want it mounted? I would think it would be easier just to carry it around or be able to pick it up and use from the bed. Dlbeck leaves one in his theater for control when downstairs and I think he has one upstairs for control in the rest of the house.
You are the J River expert, do I need more licenses for my JRemote? I just upgraded to the iphone6, so now I have an ipad and an iphone5 to help apply toward home automation....
I thought there was a cloud way to move over licenses would be nice not to have to buy 2 more.
I just really want to be able to move the ipad around but also have a wall dock so it isn't just sitting around on tables (kids will abuse it try to play games etc).
I'd rather have a dock on the master bedroom wall, then a dock in the great room wall. 2 easy places to know where it should be at all times.
I just want it to control J River or link up to my HTPC even more if possible. If I only need J Remote cool. But it would be nice to open up other applications from my ipad that are on my HTPC:
Kind of like a PC Anywhere application. If not no biggie I'll just have a smart TV or run hdmi to the TV location in the great room.
Kind of rambling, but just looking for fun options since I'm at the framing start on Monday.
Don't really need iRule for the main level. If wife can't easily figure it out and run it I'm just skipping it.
Basement we can do more fun stuff in 5 years or so.
