When I want something new I spend countless hrs researching but for this I still can't get enough of the right info to know what's what. I've thought of all kinds of crap and have no idea what will work. This is where I turn to BCSB.
Visually navigate itunes music playlists (lcd remote, iphone or tv display) of content stored on my pc. I don't care about video quality.
(I know you can use winamp playlists in wdtv but it's too much duplication remaking itunes playlists and/or duplicating content onto wd passport.)
Windows 7 desktop pc with wifi router in one room
TV & sound system & wdtv live (+ wd passport) in an adjacent room
iphone and ipod
1) Can I stream itunes to wdtv and fully control playlists via iphone? I know there are apps to control wdtv or itunes individually but will something work the way I want?
2) Buying a netbook, installing itunes on it, activating itunes homesharing, and controlling the netbook itunes (streaming from other computer) with my iphone.
3) Nyrius NIC708 Media Fusion TV Video Dock for iPod with On-screen Navigation
(read of playlist navigation problems)
4) Tekkeon NavDock for iPod
(read of remote freeze problems / weak processor)
Help make my life better. Right now I just plug my ipod into the stereo's aux input and only have volume control via the stereo remote. It is lame.
