Finally a device everybody in my house can use!
« on: December 05, 2013, 01:17:37 AM »
  A few years ago I set up a media center PC by my TV in the living room.  It was great!  I didn't want to pay for cable so I just set up a big antenna on the roof.  Put a couple of TV tuners in my PC and bought a Netflix subscription.  Pure high quality HD TV, I could record anything that came over the air and if I wanted watch Netflix.  I had it all running with a universal remote control and wireless keyboard with everything managed by Windows Media Center.  Great system.  I loved it.

But..
I'm the only one in the house that could figure out how to watch TV.  Computer has to be on, right input selected start WMC if it wasn't running.  Seemed simple to me but I'd often come home and no TV all day cus nobody could figure out the right combination to get things going.

With Chromecast my wife can find a movie on Netflix or a video on YouTube on her tablet, hit the cast button and wala!  TV turns on to the right input and she's excersizing with Jillian!

The Chromecast doesn't do nearly as much as my media PC but its simple and it works!!
