With PDA / tablet PC remote browsing etc, how do you control the rest of the signal path (amp on/off, channel selection, volume control) ?
I don't need the IR part that much (I control the volume with VisualMR through the soundbridge) but my (old) HP iPAQ has universal control software and consumer IR hardware build in.
Since only a few PocketPCs have consumer IR, there had been IR senders (along with matching software) that you plug into the the PocketPCs headset connector and that enabled your PocketPC to become a universal control.
Yes the Dell is running CE and run Outlook and IE. Again, I think their remote could be better.
Yes, having a PDA or a similar spezialized remote with a display that shows much more information including coverart and makes browsing and searching your library much easier for me accounts for a whole different SoundBridge experience.
