I was just about to spend out on Sonos amongst other things, but being a geek decided to see if there was something that would do more, and that I could really get my teeth into.
So here I am - excited!! As there's so much this can do, I'd really appreciate some thoughts / corrections to my assumptions and queries
1. Is the phone side of things compatible with SIP and H323, or just one of them?
2. Can I use a standard voice modem to connect to the phone network?
3. (Forgive me if my terminology is incorrect here, I came here after finding plutohome) - can I use any linux compatible base as a 'media director', and if so can anyone recommend a noiseless, slimline device for this purpose - or is there a better way?
4. Does the 'follow the bluetooth signal work with MCE, and if so:
a. Does it work well?
b. What happens if two people walk into a room at the same time?
c. I've seen on the wiki that you can use the RS232 port on some plasmas etc - presumably this is for turning the telly on? Will this work for most tellys?
5. Is there the ability to
a. name / choose rooms, and assign music to them (presumably by using a squeeze box by the looks of it?
b. 'link' rooms as with the sonos to play the same thing in two rooms?
Any other "you'd like this..." or "Watchout for..." comments welcome!
