MediaGate products as MD's
« on: May 13, 2010, 11:23:10 am »
Hi All,

I did a search through the wiki and the forums and could not find anything on the Media gate products and whether they are suitable as Md's.

Is anyone using them or tried to use them as MD's ?


TIA

Justin

Can you show us links about the product you are thinking of?

As requested, please find link below. There are numerous combinations to look at. They are smal and compact much like the old FIIRE equipment

I really don't know how many times I can keep repeating stuff like this over, and over..but..

IF the device can be controlled remotely, via a network protocol that is either published OR can be figured out...

guess what?

You can write a DCE driver for LinuxMCE to communicate with it.

and therefore use it as a media player in LinuxMCE.

It is precisely what I did with the SmartQ V7 MID.
