    How can I control my pc music through receiver?

    I have it hooked up via optical.

    Is there anyway I could control it without buying something like the logitech dj system?

    I can't think of any programs that let me do it to my knowledge.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    thats a big negative.

    eaither get a home theatre pc (small pc with windows xp media edition or whatever) or get a computer remote. that would be your best bet.

    Why don't you do like the rest of us and make a play list and burn it to a CD. Or even better just get up and change the song.....

    Well I have tons of playlists setup and everything like that.

    I was just wondering because with paties for example, other people are hitting the receiver remote wondering why it wont change track.

    Word. I have NEVER liked the xbox as a gaming console, no offense, but it does work very well as a media server. We watch TV episodes and movies off other computers on the network with it

    Re: How can I control my pc music through receiver?

    i'm not even a gamer and i have two of them and i havent even thought about going back to a htpc

    one in the bedroom with the basic 8gb hard drive to stream movies, music, tv shows and ****

    one in the home theater with a 250gb hard drive to do all that, but it also has 100 games on it which i never play

    you can buy a wireless adapter for them, but i think it is about $80 and i am not sure how well it would work for streaming high bitrates
