Scott Hanselman’s Computer Zen – Logitech Harmony One Remote Control Review. — Nice review of this remote. It is a pretty good universal remote and I am also pretty happy with. The one huge problem is lack of bluetooth support to control a PS3 as a DVD player. But overall a pretty good experience.
Now that I have a PS3 I want to serve up photos etc to it. Trying to decide between all the choices out there:
* Google’s new media server
* Free Media Player Streams iTunes, Syncs Content, Converts Video for iPod, PSP and Xbox 360 – SimpleCenter
* WMP 11 of course
* One man’s guide to all the choices out there
* Eyeconnect seems to be liked on the Mac
* or Mediatomb
I have a TON of photos and I need something that will perform well, not clear which of these is the way to go. Time to start experimenting I gues
Spent the morning hooking up my birthday present — a PS3. Replacing my DVD player.
One major bummer is the PS3’s use of bluetooth for remote. While I appreciate an RF solution versus an IR solution, as the PS3 boards note, no universal remote will currently work with the PS3. So sigh, I have to keep yet another remote around. Bummer.
Also my AV receiver is a few years old and doesn’t support HDMI and so I have to use RGB + Digital Audio connectors. My AV receiver is in a tight cabinet and so I have to work largely blind plugging cables in, this was painful. HDMI would be nice for reduction of cables.
