I believe I have outgrown my snapstream firefly and am on a mission to find a remote control solution for my setup. Here is what i know.
I will soon have 3 htpc/client systems on a home ethernet network with a file server. I will most likely have 3 separate remotes, one for each client system. Each system will be simple with a slim profile htpc (ahanix 302b), a slim receiver/amp and an lcd monitor with dvi connection to the client.
The way I see it, the remote(s) i am looking to purchace must control
1. the on/off for they lcd monitor (which i think is pretty tough to do :-\ )
2. control beyond tv (i am not an mce user) running in front of winXPpro. these clients WILL NOT have a keyboard or mouse.
3. control the slim receiver/amp (on/off, volume, input source, etc)
My snapstream (RF) has been good to me but I am pretty sure i will need to go to IR to do the deed. I can’t even wake my htpc up with the firefly. The MCE remote is IR and should be able to control the htpc and receiver. I wonder if the monitor control is even possible or if i should just leave it on all the time (black screen in sleep mode)?
Suggestions are appreciated. Please help! 🙂
