i dont use it much since I can just use AirTunes or press a button and use my HTPC (which I never use)

but it lists whatever folders are there and you just scroll through them. it lists under photos, video, or music sections basically. I pointed it to my itunes folder for example and it just lists the folders there (artist name).

what about video playback? I can record in anything so its not a big deal

If you use a HTPC do you run your cable through it with a IR blaster of just run basic channels?

(Fortunately, most of this including the fridge and the TV have come to us for free, or very nearly so)

Some pictures of the gang from last Tuesday evening:

IR wuh?

i dont really use the HTPC as an HTPC. just enough to make it "never" really. It's more of a file server with a video card.

I use directivo.

Basically you run the output of your box, to the input of of your comp, run the comp to the tv. The computer will have a IR transmitter, small little thing that you place over the cable box reciever. The ir blaster will run through different IR codes to get your box, then all the controls run through the TV.

Ill do it when I have some more time. Not good for video games because of the video lag, but fine for watch TV

to be honest the games i'm most excited about are coming to both consoles.
GTA4
Mafia 2
Assassin's Creed

I'm glad I have the blu-ray though, along with it just being a really high quality (inside and out) system.

GT5 is a huge PS3 exclusive, I couldn't give two ***** about halo.

I'll admit I did enjoy gears of war.

Do you have a media center PC? It works ****** awesome with a MCEPC, just like any other MCE extender, and I can even use the MCEPC remote (though I just programmed my ProntoPro). It works pretty good with a standard XP pc too. I understand the set up is a little tedious, but it works fine. You basically navigate folders.
