Make Your Home PC an Entertainment Server for Your Cell Phone
AllMiMedia From [The Shifted Librarian]
" 'Think of AllMiMedia as home networking on steroids,' said Dr. Luc Julia, BravoBrava's co-founder and vice president of research and development. 'With AllMiMedia, you have a personal network that is always with you, giving you access and control over your digital content, whether you're at home or on the other side of the country.'
AllMiMedia allows a person's digital content -- including photos, music, Microsoft® Media Center-stored content, live television channels and Internet TV and radio -- to be remotely accessed and controlled through a web-enabled cell phone or PDA. 'With AllMiMedia, a person could remotely program his TiVo® to record 'The West Wing' and play it back later, or even watch it live from his cell phone,' said Julia...." [via Daily Palm]
There's a TiVo Edition of the software and a Windows XP Media Center Edition, described below:
"This $12/year service allows existing Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2004 users to remotely program video recording with a wireless device such as their web-enabled cell phone or PDA. For an optional $20/year, it also allows users to view photos remotely and to listen to their music stored on their Windows® XP Media Center Edition PC as well as accessing information such as weather and stocks. Check if your cell phone is AllMiMedia compliant now!"
I am happy to report that the Treo 600 is compliant, but I don't have Windows XP Media Center. It's the "listen to their music stored" on their PC that piques my interest, but not enough to go with Media Center.
