Hello guys this is my first post in the forum although i am reading it long time
I am thinking of how to set up my video distribution in my apartment. I have 4 zones ( Living room, Bedroom 1&2, and the balcony) .
My video sources are Apple mac mini as media server , PS3 , DVD Player , TV BOX.
I have two choices for the distribution if i will go with all the video sources to be distributed in all rooms ( bigger cost) and the other one which is the one i think i will go for it is to have in all the zones the TV BOX and Mac Mini distributed and the other sources ( DVD Player and PS3) to be local connected to an A/V receiver in the Living room.
My question is regarding the second solution in terms of controlling. I would like to control all the system from an iPad.
i will use a video matrix and the question is how i can control the A/V receiver from the iPad?
The video matrix i will use can be controlled from a web browser so the matrix is ok from the iPad, but the A/V receiver can it be connected to the matrix and therefore to be controlled from the matrix's web browser interface? and if not what do i have to use to be able to control both ( matrix and a/v receiver)
