I've got an Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver. I have outdoor speakers on my deck connected to it through Zone 2. I also have an HTPC connected to it currently running Windows 8 (Consumer Preview).
My vision is that I'm outside with my Android tablet. On my tablet I browse my music located on my htpc, select a song and it starts playing through my deck speakers. I'd also prefer to be able to play and control my Sirius Internet Streaming account, and Pandora and Spotify. Don't want to use Apple Airplay though.
One idea that I have is to run XBMC 11 on my htpc and then run XBMC Remote on my Android tablet. That will probably do the trick, however I don't think I'd be able to use my Sirius or Pandora or Spotify with that method, correct?
What other ideas do you got? Any hardware streamers out there that have a really good Android app to control it? Or maybe is there a way to stream from Android to my htpc? If the music had to live on my tablet instead of my htpc, that would be fine.
