Thanks for your info, Yes I have been here for a month and so, so far I have 2 computer setup with LinuxMCE, TV Tuner PVR-150 MCE package with remote, I still have some hard time to get the remote do the IR blaster that can control my Air conditional ( Still don't know how). Even my onboard Network card still not working (But the USB Ethernet work well)

Have ordered ACT Z-wave devices, Couldn't get other type for UK 240V AC. Those part should be here today.

I am trying to get some alarm panel such as GE Concord or Honewell or may be ELK.

Honestly, the more I work on it, the more I got confuse, Especially the Air Conditional with remote, I couldn't get it to work, I don't even know how I should start.

I am trying to figure out what is the different between those DVD and DVD DL (Double layer)? Feature different?
Why the LinuxMCE-DVD-DL-i386-rc1.iso is not available on the download page?

Yes, I try to do Media + Control. This is going to put in my living room, would like to hook up with security camera if people press a door bell.

Also, are all those ELO touch panel work? I have seen a lot of them will fit my application.

What is the different between Accutouch, CarrollTouch and IntelliTouch? Which one is the best?

Andrew,
     Do you know any good wall mount TouchPanel? Size doesn't matter, as long as it is bigger than 10.4 inches.

The problem for me is the website doesn't provide in English.

What brand of PXE-bootable touch panel? Try to google around, but couldn't get anything.

Thanks for the info, What kind of Wall Mount TouchPanel option do I have? It seem like I have a hard time to fine one, At least 10.4 inch or bigger, I will need at least 2 of them.

How much it cost a switch or dimmer from Merten? Any idea about the range? I couldn't find in my region, most of their office is closed here in Singapore, Can some one give me some idea about the price?

Hi Hari, Does Merten make the controller (USB or Serial) for LinuxMCE? I didn't see any information about the Z-wave product on their website.

IF I hook up USB-IRDA with Computer, I guess it will does the same as GC100? At least for the IR part?

Can I connect to the Home alarm system and take advantage of the motion sensor to control the light, Or what kind of huge contact input device can I get? If Home alarm will do, which one has more zone and work better?

This is what I would like to have:

1. Full automation Light/dimmer
2. Every room with the capability of streaming video and audio
3. Each room can turn on Air Conditional by IR

Here is what I plan to have:
1. Will put in each room (VIA PC2500E Mini-ATX Motherboard $60 + USB-UIRT $55 + Casing & Power Supply $85 = $200 each = total 10 * $200 = $2000)
2. Install switch from ACT-Solution (Seem like they are the only one make 230V AC switch and dimmer) $4,000
3. Nokia N800 tablet? ($200 each), Will get 4 pcs in the kitchen, Living room, dining room, second living room. 4 * $200 = $800
4. Spend a $1500 for the Core System

* All rooms already have at least 32 inch LCD
** Each rooms has at least 3 Cat5e connect to Server Room

If I do this, Can I get Air Conditional, Lighting, Streaming Video and Audio done?

Can I streaming video and audio from the Nokia N800 tablet?
