So I'm going to control:
Oppo DVD (just for region free dvds)
Anthem mx-700 receiver
Panasonic vt25 TV
I have a Sonos as well, but it doesn't seem like this needs control as I'll just switch the input on the receiver and go over to the Sonos App)
Seems that IR will be fine for the BluRay and DVD Players.
I'm thinking that RS232 will be useful for the mx-700, but I'm not particularly sure why I think this.
I was thinking IP control for the HTPC, though in some initial testing it's clear you really don't want the iDevice going to sleep as it seemed to stop working.
For the TV, I was thinking of just going IR to reduce the controller cost, but as with the receiver, wonder if RS232 would be better.
I'm I thinking in the right direction?
As with my previous post, I'll be embarrassed if this info is available with a search, but I couldn't find it.
