To be honest, the page pointed to is far too generic and marketing-oriented to be of any use really. As we say, the devil is in the details. I have more questions about it after reading this page......

I'm in exactly the same boat as you are, except I don't have a single license at all. From my point of view:

For me it's going to be MediaPortal, for a variety of reasons.

First of all, it is open source. That way, nobody will decide do "close it down" and screw me like SageTV did. How can you guys even...

One advantage over Media Center and SageTV: It is open source, no one is going to ever pull the plug on it.

Proprietary software has shown one of its limit right there: It...

Jeff,

From what other buyouts like this one have shown us, is that it may very well stay as it is for a while. And by a while, I mean months.

You are correct, these apps do work as a remote control and are enough to control the audio stream. The remaining part is syncing different clients.
