im looking into retiring my mp101 and getting a touch or duet. Is it possible to use a media centre plugin in so that when i have people round we can make use of the lcd tv as a large display and control the playing of songs using the media centre remote. tather than using the duet remote or touch screen. Hope that makes sense?

Thanks in advance

I don't think you'll be able to control it with your remote but for the display take a look at http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=74270

You can always use the webUI at http://<your-server-IP>:9000

I have the "second head" of my server's video card connected to my DLP via HDMI cable (which is about 30ft long.. be sure to check froogle.com for prices; I think I paid about US$25 for the cable.)

I then use an Adesso 2.4 GHz keyboard (http://www.adesso.us/index.php/en/home/keyboards/89-wkb-4000us) that has a much longer (and non-line-of-sight) range than the "usual" IR wireless keyboards. I got mine from Dell for about US$70.
