    I was curious, would it be possible to develop an app. that could interface with a HTPC (Home Theater PC) via bluetooth? The meedio developers are rather slow at implementing this. I thought maybe I could gather up some peeps and try and get something going. I am new to palm programing but I am willing to learn.

    So here is my idea. I think it would be great to come home hit a button on the Treo and BAM! tunes while you take your shoes after a long day. The HTPC has recorded your favorite show earlier in the day but you don't have time to watch it. So you sync your Treo and that said show is placed on the Treo.

    The features could be endless, think about it: Play music on your HTPC via your Treo, Control your movies on your big screen, control your air conditioner, control your lights, and so on. All over a bluetooth connection.


    I myself have got:

    D.Vine 5 Case

    2.4Ghz Intel processor
    1GB Ram
    1TB of storage
    WinXP Pro
    Meedio as a front end

    Absolutely! I use Salling Clicker with my Mac HTPC. I don't have a good 10-foot interface like I have for my PC HTPC (BeyondMedia/TV) but through Clicker I have great control of the Mac and don't miss it. There are several Clicker-like apps for the PC. None of them have a PalmOS client though. Maybe the Clicker PalmOS client is compatible with one of them? I don't have time to test, but maybe someone on the board does?

    Something like Sailing Clicker would be really nice for the PC. I suggested meedio cause it allows messages to be sent to it, and it publishes datafeeds. There is also an exstensive network of plug-in developers. You can have a look at their message board here. You can also have a look at all the plug-ins availible to help our quest here. I hope this some help.

    I found a starting place. Maybe some of you folks could reverse engineer this into something that looks a little better. http://basalt.amulet.cs.cmu.edu/v6/s.../palmguide.php
