Hi,

New to the world of Android and loving it so far. We have two new devices. The wife has a TF300T and I have an HTC Evo 3D (Evo V technically). Would like the option to use these as remote controllers for a media center.

I was wondering if people had any media center recommendations? Should it be Android powered as well?


I was checking this out but I don't know how compatible it would be with our devices? The price is what caught my eye of course.

If your just looking for something simple that is wife friendly, how about a roku player? There is a roku remote app. I'm not sure what kind of streaming you'd be looking to do but it works for what I need (Netflix, Hulu & streaming video from my pc using playOn)

We really don't pay for any streaming services. I'd like it to be able to play any video format. Have a fairly large xvid collection. I thought being able to control it from her transformer would be a neat thing.

I agree that a Roku box is probably your simplest option, but from what I can tell it doesn't do xvid. It will play files from a USB flash or hard drive, but only files it supports (MKV and MP4 H.264, I believe).

I stream xvid using playOn. There is a cost to it though, it's $20 a year (at least it was last year)
