Re: Nerd needs some nerd help with DIY ipad media/automation system.

Thanks for the tips so far. I just ordered a buttload of arduino stuff from DX. I am actually thinking rasberri PI for the brain but arduino seemed simpler to begin with. I'm still torn between having one do everything boxs a bunch of simpler controllers just talking to the 'brain'

Anybody got any suggestions on simplifying the interface of something like the XBMC into a 'remote' style interface?

Project creep has already set in. I've never done anything like this and now I see these $30 RC UAV flight control boards with GPS and accelerometers and I start thinking 'how hard could it be to build an autopilot form scratch?"

Doh!
