linksys media extenders
« on: February 19, 2008, 08:58:53 pm »
Hi, I am a newbie at linux mce and I was wondering if you can use the linksys media extender that is sold for MSMC with linux MCE. I am presently looking at all options for extending my core to all rooms in my house and would rather not pay $500 for each room. Any comments or suggestions??

No comment on the linksys ME, but you can build a MD for under $250.

The linksys  probably could use any media from the core using UPnP using its own interface but would not control LinuxMce in any way.

Thanks every body. I cant wait to get into all this. I am a old fedora man and kubuntu is a little new to me but this is going to be very good.

yes, avcontrol for upnp would be great. There is even some open source java code (http://www.cidero.com/).

I would donate  a D-LINK DSM520 to the brave heart implementing it.

best regards,
