Devon AVC-A1HD amp as MD?
« on: June 08, 2010, 08:06:47 am »
Hi All,

I have LinuxMCE running in my home but only as MediaCenter at the moment, but now I wanna take it a step further.
A friend of mine wants to go the whole nine yards over the next few months, so I'll be asking for alot of help here. For myself personally its a big learning curve and I'm very excited about it. This is the kinda stuff I love!!!! I have a passion for Linux,

Back to the topic.......
My friend has a Devon AVC-A1HD amp, it has ethernet capabilities. Hooked it up to a LinuxMCE test box. The amp has a file browser that actually sees files on the LinuxMCE BOX. But my question is can the amp be used as an MD?


Thanx in Advance

Thanx in Advance

The Denon AVC-A1HD Surround Amp is just that - a Surround Amp. It does have a UPNP server in it too though. But it has no functionality that would allow it to be an MD.

All the best
