Graphical Media Center Remote Front Panel


Thanks, as always, for Chris L. pointing out this Media Center Remote Front panel from ACS! I see some nice potential for surrounding room control. For example, in a great room style house, you would not need an additional zone to listen to your HTPC, but it would be nice to have an inexpensive solution like this to control your music.

Our 128 x 64 Serial Graphic LCD Display Terminal
provides an outstanding MCE remote front panel display for Windows
MCE. Not only does it display the current MCE state, it also allows
you to control MCE using the membrane switch overlay.

Using our display terminal as an MCE remote, you can control your MCE
machine from anywhere in your house. Change radio stations, browse

be mounted in any standard double gang outlet box.
