HTPC Software

13 09 2009

So now that I have hardware that will physically connect and show me things its time to try out various software for what I want.  My immediate goals are simple:

1) Play DVDs
2) Play Music and be able to sort by ID3 tag info prefferable
3) Use a remote

Software Starting Points:

1) GREmote – This is a pretty cool sofware that turns a Windows Mobile Pro device into a remote for a Windows based box. There is a free and a pro version.  I played with it and got it working on a differnet machine a while ago and it seems very promising so I’ll start there for remote sofware.

2) Boxee – They recently released an alpha for Windows so the remote and the media program would run on the same platform which is REALLY helpful.

Lets see where this goes.
