FYI, Syabas makes an iDevice App called MobileRC that controls the PCH C-200. I just discovered it yesterday and it works really well. Since we have 6 iphones/ipads in the house, it is a great alternative while I work out the IR issues.
What is the need for Popcorn Hour? Doesn't Windows Media Center do the same thing?
Same thing similar to how a moped and a bmw can both get you to/from work. Just chalk it up to personal preference. I see you started your build. good luck!
For $300 I doubt its Moped to BMW...probably more like BMW 1 series to a 3 series...and something like Kaleidescope is an MB CLS65 AMG...As my former co-worker used to say "it'll get lost in the rounding"
I'll take a look at the popcorn when I start building my HTPC.
Yeah I started my build thread. HVAC guy coming in about 2 weeks to hook up the 2nd zone for the basement...They're waiting to hear back from the town for a permit...if I knew they needed a permit I would have taken care of it while I waited for over a month for my building permits
After HVAC I can wrap up plumbing for the wet bar and electric for the basement...then back into the theater
