The future of AV.
One day LMCE will not fight alsa, it will bend it to its will, and audio will "just work" on everything.
One day lmce video of any kind will play cleanly on almost everything without fiddling with it.
That is the only future of AV I can see from behind all the code.
And if you have anything to do with it, this will be the case, I am confident.
Another thought/question I've come across in the search for AV-control info/understanding/enlightenment-
App-control is a term that seems to be bandied around a bit. As I understand it this is the ability to download an APP to control your HT Receiver. Presumably to do this the Receiver must either be networked (wired/wireless) or bluetooth enabled. If the former, would a receiver that advertises App-control be easy (relatively) to setup a device template for, based on the assumption that the control protocol must be available if there is an APP that uses it? Any thoughts?
