Interesting—that looks pretty big. And doesn't look like what I see with my stick. If that's the relative size I'd see on my projector, I wouldn't be too happy. I'll check mine out tonight and...

I've got a Roku Stick in the 48" TV in our family room. Netflix subtitles look ok for me. How big is your screen? Any pics you could share?

Wireless speakers still need power—either line-voltage, or battery-powered, neither of which to my knowledge come as weather-proof.

Are you sure it'd be a major job to run speaker wires? I...

It allows a central shared library for Kodi. If you don't use a MySQL library, when you add media to your server, you'd have to update each client individually.

For a blaster/emitter/IR in, the standard is 3.5mm mono. I think the Harmony Hub uses 2.5mm jacks, which is a pain—I know there are adapters, but don't know where to find 'em.
