Nailed it!!!! Media Center PC in basement, but speakers wired throughout house. Display in living room, but never have had an Android based solution, for example, for my wife to be getting ready post-shower in bathroom and actually see Media Center to pick music, or me in the garage or on the deck. Over the years I've messed with Remote Access, Chrome, Ceton app, etc. Everything was too clunky to really use past an initial try. Just installed the Media Center Control Server and this app and showed my wife. She was so excited, she picked up the dog and danced with it (not a small dog). She just left to go to the store and a particularly favorite song of mine came on as she left the garage. Note: I've never reviewed an app before or paid for many apps. Thanks to the developer.
Playlist issue It would be nice if the playlist would also show the song that was playing so that if a particular artist's song was playing we could see their other songs and easily play another rather than having to scroll the whole list every time.
great works great, exactly what I was looking for. using it with Vista, but only with WMP (incompatible with vista MCE) still, other than the tv scheduling and playback, does everything else I need.
Will not stay connected Cannot get control to stay connected to a computer long enough to get any use of it. But when you do its brilliant, got issues sorted now and would recommend this.
Excellent Does what it claims in an organized way. Read the instructions, some of the features are controlled by the server and not by the client app. Some minor cosmetic issues. Given the poor quality of many of the alternatives this app is a joy.
Great app if I knew what I finally figured out.how to find my Mac and network password! Gee this should be explained in the setup process.not everyone is a computer expert. Now things are working fine.
