I'm contemplating building a small form factor PC for use as a media centre type device - to store my CDs etc., and possibly do PVR type functions too.
One thing I can't see how to do:
I'd like some kind of remote control solution so I don't need to turn the TV on just to play a (virtual) CD.
At a minimum I need to be able to select from a list of playlists, ideally it would also be able to select tracks too. Something not windows specific would be good. It also needs to be not too expensive.
