Enjoyed Modestep at the Oxford O2 Academy yesterday, alongside energetic sweaty teenagers. Had to rescue Lucy on my lap from being “moshed”. Had a chat with a friend about smart TVs and iPhones… “Smart TV are fantastic, there are lots of good remote access features nowadays e.g. airplay, ELP etc
I use a raspberryPi with raspbmc (a dedicated build of the open source media player xbmc to control everything through infrared), worth a Google if you have a minute. I also have a remote control app for this on my iphone.
