Anyone have experience controlling any of these streamers from a Crestron?

Any recommendations?

What works well, doesn't, etc.

Did you have code written or use a module?

How is the gui?

Thanks

Did you search the yahoo group?

Thanks, that was a good idea, its been a while since I've been over there.

I did some searching and found some discussions of folks controlling a Roku via some one-way control module and similarly for Apple TV's.

I didn't see anyone discussing the pros/cons of various streamers from a Crestron control perspective which is what I'm interested in.

I like the idea of the Roku for its fairly wide range of sources (notably except Vudu and itunes).

Anyone who's had to choose a streamer for a Crestron environment and thought through their pros/cons regarding control?

I regularly use IR control for Apple TV via crestron. Works very well.
Gui module looks exactly like Apple remote. Very intuitive and easy to use.
