I am new to Linuxmce, but have used mythtv for many years. Somewhere in the near future, I'd like to use linuxmce as an intercom in our house. So... would a properly chosen orbiter be enough for that, or do I need a Media Director? I was thinking to use nokia N800 units, but would that actually work if set up as an orbiter?
Thanks a lot,
The Orbiter is just the UI to the LinuxMCE system. Each Media Director also has an integral Orbiter to provide a local UI to control it with but it is the Media Director that has the media playback functionality. Therefore where you want to actually interface to some Media Playback equipment ie an Amplifier + speakers you need to feed the audio in from a local MD attached to it. The Media files themselves may actually reside on the Core or on another devices hard drive or be streamed like TV live from the Core.
Hope the above makes sense... if not let us know ;-)
