Hey....I have been looking into streaming music from my pc to my home theater & looked at Sonos but the only thing I didn't like about Sonos was it has a separate control just for the music. I want an actual remote control to do everything...not just music control only.
With the Philips RC9800i can I hook up something like the Apple AirPort Express & use this remote or do I need something else as a media adapter? I will want to use the remote off of the cradle...so I do need some media adapter, which I thought the AirPort is, right?
I know the interface won't be quite as pretty as the Sonos, like no coverart but I do like iTunes & my kids of course use iTunes...Oh, I should say I have not purchased songs from iTunes & will not use the AAC file format, only MP3 files.
So, if I cannot use the Airport Express...What other Media adapter can I use that will facilitate iTunes...or am I stuck with using the Philips Media Manager?
By the way, I am currently using the Denon Aktis remote, so this remote would be an upgrade for me even with all the quirks(The Denon has it's own quirks)...
Thanks in advance

Am I totally wrong about this thing?
The concept of this remote is really great...I was just wondering if you have to use Philips Media Management, which I downloaded yesterday & it looks like you must use that program to communicate with the remote
Any help on the type of media adapter would help, preferebly something with iTunes/iTunes file management usability.
Thanks in advance
