My livingroom TV (Samsung UE55C8700) supports something called DLNA DMR (Digital Media Renderer). This means it can play anything Windows "Play To" can through at it, for Kubuntu same goes for apps like Rygel.
So I have the media, either via MediaTomb or Myth, I have the player (Samsung TV) and at this moment a MD to glue it together. What are the chances of the orbiter/core controlling the TV directly using DLNA/PNP, cutting out the MD?
As far as I can find in the forum, Dianemo already offers simular, any expectation it will be ported into LMCE or something comparable will be available? If I could write the software myself I would do just that but getting the TV to play already took me ages.....
