I have been trying to find a cheap method of serving media to my televisions.
Here is my current setup: I have a PC running TVErsity (under Windows) and another running MediaTomb (under KUbuntu) which stream media quite delightfully to my PlayStation 3 and my dumb television.
I have three other rooms which could use a TV in them and I’d like to use a projects board to create a client which can do the same thing. A PS3 uses a lot of power - way more than Beagle Board or RPi.
All I can seem to find are ways to turn a Beagle Board into a DNLA +server_ - I want a client. I am familiar with Ubuntu but I can use Debian if need be. I am an expert with PLCs and .Net but have no experience whatsoever with Beagle Boards.
I need a starting point. I’d like to start with a full system and then experiment at will. Oh, and I really know very little about DLNA itself so I’d like to start with a working solution and then break it enough to understand what I’m doing.
Yeah, I’d also need to include Wi-Fi at some point (don’t ask for much, do I?)
How hard would it be to add in a programmable remote?
Full web access later might be nice, but streaming from my server is the most important bit.
And in a totally unrelated bit: does anyone know of spaceship models (Star Wars prefferred) that will fit a Beagle Board well? This is only the first of several projects I want to try.
