I have being working to get everything in my house on TCP/IP for about 2 years, and I have some favorites (which I mention often!). But I would love to hear what folks like. If you have CAT5e/6, a nice wiring closet, a couple of smart phones and good Wifi, what is the best gear out there? The only rule is that it lives on the network. My picks:
Here's my picks:
1. Audio - Sonos. Incredibly easy to set up, passes the wife test with flying colors
2. Broadcast TV - HD Homerun and Microsoft MCE. Put the box in the basement and any PC can have an HD DVR. What's not to like about that!
3. Phone - Ooma. It just works.
4. NAS - I have ReadyNAS, which is really not great. Love Time Capsule by Apple, but only for backup, not as a media device
5. AVR - Denon AVR3311. What a great receiver
6. Remote - iRule. Not perfect by any standard, but so much better than that Harmony stuff and IR.
Anyone else want to weigh in? Anything that looks promising coming down the pike?
