    Default Can C-Bus work with any Media Centre bsed automation product

    I am looking for a Media Centre based program that will run lighting, power, security, temperature, voice activation and any relay controlled device that we decide to add to it. Is there any programs that are out there that run in MCE?. Does it work with c-bus and many other automation systems?

    I'm not sure if there is a C-BUS app for MCE but I'm sure it won't be long before one appears.

    The only thing that I would be concerned about, as a user of MCE, is the instability issues of the OS. As an AV source, MCE works great and with a minimum of fuss, however I am also what MS might call a 'Power User' and I use my machine for quite a few tasks - often leading to crashes! I'm sure I'm not alone in this and it probably isn't a concern for most users but if you start trying to use MCE as a HA server, I can't help thinking that problems may arise. :?:
