For fixed panels, surely the best solution is DVI? That is, no DACs whatsoever - just digital straight to the projector. Of course, not all fixed panel projectors support DVI (but pretty much all...

Good question - I don't know. My biggest problem at the moment is that if I try and adjust the volume while PowerDVD is running, the volume goes to 0. Is everyone else seeing this problem, or am I...

Yeah, HomeRF would be about perfect for this application, actually! From a programming perspective, either could work, since both of them support TCP/IP. So it'd be up to each individual to decide....

Regarding the black-and-white iPAQ, I'm pretty sure it can't handle PC Cards (ie no jackets available), so that means no 802.11b, and that pretty much puts it out of the picture for me. Pls let me...

The more I think about it the more this card looks like a SBLive 5.1 killer. It should compete directly with the SBLive 5.1 but offer much better performance without a radical price difference.
