    Anybody experimented with c-bus and HTPC with a free plug-in like xlobby?

    Take a look- www.xlobby.com

    You can access xlobby via a TV, any device with wireless and a browser, a remote control, or a colour touchscreen costing as little as $400. you can control just about anything with a serial port, presumably including C-Bus though there is no sign of it in the impressively long list of supported products...

    I was given a real jolt by the multizone audio. You can drive 3 stereo zones with different inputs via a single $90 soundblaster card. or as many amplified zones as you want using 1 $99 powerwave device per zone. All controlled via remote, touchscreen, whatever.

    rohan, yeah I've looked at it already... price seems fair, and I see it has C-bus, Comfort and Elk interfaces already. I want the multizone audio, though, and does it have a web option like xlobby? With the web server active, you can hit xlobby from any browser, inclucing a wifi Windows CE machine or whatever, and control everything.

    Not sure about the Audio, not my interest, but pop over and ask the question.

    No web server yet, but on the list.

    It has CE support for PDA type devices, via WiFi if you wish.
