Can anyone help me find what I'm looking for?
I'm looking to set up my home media centre and I'm currently just going round in circles and need some recommendations.
I don't have a TV but watch films through a laptop linked to a projector with the audio being delivered through my HiFi.
I listen to music, either internet radio or music stored on an external HD again through laptop / HiFi combo.
Basically I'm looking for a programme to manage music & film library with a nice app Available both on iphone & android tablet. I have played with xbmc but it did not like my film collection so refused to display them on the app.
Secondly, I would like to add the ability to listen to music in the bedroom.
I believe my requirements are;
+Manage my library of music and films.
+Be able to be remotely controlled by phone (iPhone) and tablet (andriod)
+play music in different rooms.
I think my best option for the multiroom requirement is to add a speaker switch to main hifi & run a cable under the floors with some nice bookshelf speakers in the bedroom. This shouldn't be a big job as its one level & have crawl space under the floors and an access hatch in the bedroom.
What other options are out there I should be considering?
