I have a very functional and satisfactory home theater setup for movies. Includes TV, surround sound, PS3 for games and Blu Ray, etc. I also have a stripped down version of this setup in another room ---- regular sound, dedicated blu ray player, etc. I don't really need any changes in the video system. Where I want to improve my system is the playback of my music. I have essentially a music server on my PC, and two (since I have two locations) WDTVLIVEPLUS boxes that, as part of my network, can play the music through the sound systems in each room. Their are two choices for user interface: a) you can "play to" the WDTVLIVEPLUS boxes using Windows Media 12 (all my music is organized under this application). I really like this interface because it is very intuitive, has good graphics and is scaled well so you have a lot of data on the screen you are using. Drag and drop for songs, playlists, albums, music videos is excellent. b) If you don't want to fire up your laptop, you can use the WDTVLIVEPLUS interface on your TV. This requires the use of the WD remote control where you select various options on the screen to drill down to the exact music element you want. I love my boxes, but this U/I is just clunky and not great. Plus there seems to be a lot of latency... What I want to do is control the music using a tablet. Typically my wife and I play a few songs each, and passing the laptop back and forth, in order to use WMP12 is just too awkward. So I am thinking tablet. Problem: few, if any Windows tablets, and what is out there is expen$ive. Now I hear a decent MS tablet and OS "may" be out next year in the Fall. Hmmm....long time to wait. Answering my own question somewhat, I could go with iPad and iTunes (right?). Hoping to hear from someone who uses this combination for their music in Home Theater. Initially started with iTunes, but I didn't like the constant updating and the control the app wanted to exert over other aspects of my PC ops. And, at the time I bought my WD boxes, there were some machinations involved tailoring iTunes processes so the WD boxes would work. So I went totally with Windows. So the question is ---- how, short of going with iPad/iTunes (assume....) do I get a nice, portable (tablet) and intuitive user interface to control music playback, where the music folders are all available on the network (and are currently being controlled by WMP12)?
