Ok i have a few questions about tv server/client setups. I currently have a pc running windows xp which i want to use as a server in the study. I am also buying a mac mini in the next few days to sit nxt to the lcd tv in the loungeroom.

The two will be hardwired linked, and i will use bootcamp to install windows xp on the mac

So my questions are this, the tv tuners will be in the server computer, so how do i setup so the remote in the loungeroom can control the computer in the study as well as the loungeroom so i can change channels, turn off etc etc. Do i need to buy more hardware??

    Hi there and welcome :)

    Your remote will control the MediaPortal (MP) TV client in the lounge. The MP TV Client will relay channel change requests to the MP TV Server via your normal network.
    Your remote will not be able to turn study off, but you can look at the included powerscheduler plugins to put in to sleep and wake it up again.
