whats keeping you from having two separate networks for the time being...one to familiarize and test lmce and the other one for your everyday use. Once you figured lmce out for yourself, you can always make the switch. In the end, you have to find out for yourself, if lmce is for you or not.
Yes, but since these devices have far more advanced video playback and GPU processing features, we can actually make every portable device not only a control point, but also a media end point.
Also, consider PlutoStorageDevices. Once this is running on PadOrbiter v2, the host device will suddenly be able to share USB storage devices with the rest of the house, transparently.
You will need to create a device template and do some complex pipe rules for the Russound. This is a very advanced topic, and only a handful of people know how to successfully pull it off correctly (myself included).
i am available for paid consult, if working via forum isn't enough.
Just put the MD with the receiver and stuff into another room/box, and
just put the wires for the TV and loudspeakers thru the wall
With LinuxMCE you don't want multi-zone amps, but an amp for each
zone. And each zone is controlled by either an MD or a SqueezeBox. In
theory you can use a multizone-amp, but that means doing a lot of
loudspeaker cabling, whereas with the original LinuxMCE approach you
only need a single CAT cable to each zone.
You get what you pay for. The <100EUR tablets have a very flimsy feel,
but work ok. A used iPod Touch is also nice, if you have good eyes and
