Ok so this post isn’t really related to UC at all, but what the hey …
Over the Christmas/New Year period I finally got around to playing with my media setup at home (yep, I’m a geek alright). I now have the following hooked up and working nicely:
- 40″ Sony Bravia HDTV
- Media Centre PC (Vista Ultimate Edition)
- Xbox 360
- Xbox Live (Gears of War rocks)
- Xbox 360 acting as a Media Centre Extender
- Zune (yes I got a brown one – and I like it!)
- Bose noise-cancelling headphones (I spend a lot of time on planes)
- SlingBox Pro
So now I have an almost-perfect media experience wherever I am (actually that kind of is related to UC – where I also have all a perfect communications experience wherever I am!).
At home I can stream music, TV and movies to whatever room I am in; if I’m on a plane I have all of my music and most of my movies on my Zune (I used to have an iPod Mini then a Creative Zen Micro, but with the excellent screen and battery-life on the Zune I will never go back); and I can watch my TV at home from anywhere in the world via the SlingBox (handy when I’m in the USA and the rugby is on TV).
So my question is – what do you reckon I should do next?
I’ll post some photos as soon as I find the charger for my camera!
