Could always go cable card Tivo and 5 TiVo minis. That will give you live tv/dvr/Netflix/Amazon at all TVs. What content do you need to play from a PC? The Tivo has a plex client, or you could do a...

You could look at "Just Add Power" for the HDMI matrix. Not sure if they have a distributer in Australia. Or decide it's not needed for the sources you have. What sources do you plan to use? You...

If you want to use Dante, 3x Symetrix Radius 12x8 will give you the 24 outputs you need, and these units have Dante onboard. Retail is probably around 10k for all 3, I'm sure you could negotiate a...

Well if the plan is to save money, the obi 200 is currently $34 on Ebay via newegg.

As mentioned, use eventghost and the broadcaster plugin. I think iRule has a step by step guide on their site for using eventghost and Media Center.

What product were you quoted for 12k? You can't even sniff a 48 port/device JAP system for anywhere near that, 1G or 2G.


If you really want to roll your own on this you can, but I would advise...

I just checked the manual, there's nothing built in. So you are at mercy of device you are controlling. Temper your expectations if you expect a full featured Pandora GUI on your tablet from a Roku...

I do like the mini. I mounted it centered above a light switch, so a full size ipad mounted in the wall wouldn't have worked there due to the stud. On a larger empty wall I would go with a full size...

I don't have experience with it, but I'd be amazed if that Niles unit couldn't be controlled via 3rd party IP control (iRule or others.) I also see no reason not to add the functionality into iRule,...

Didn't see it mentioned, have you looked into dumping the matrix and going with Tivo + Tivo minis instead? The great refurb pricing on the roamios is over, but I would still recommend it over a...

Also, with 3 people in the house how many tuners do you really need? You would probably be fine with a 4 tuner Roamio.

I'll second the TiVo recommendation. Lots of people here are jumping in, as the sale pricing is what these things should realistically cost.

Everything I read shows no service fees for the mini. It looks like this was a promo that stated late last year and now they all just come with lifetime service. I probably wouldn't have bought in if...

The TiVo mini (older version) is $100 on Amazon still which I don't think is too offensive. From the minimal research I did the only difference appears to be IR vs RF remote w/ newer model. I'll...

With all the Tivo talk here, I jumped on that deal for a refurb roamio and lifetime for $300. I would never, ever, pay $700 for this, but $300 makes it interesting. Will need to pick up some Tivo...

Insteon and ISY994 (controller) seem like the logical progression if so. The ISY still supports X10 as well. I use ISY 994 and Insteon, but have no...
