Suggestions On your blog you discuss how you might drop support for connecting via the media server. Well I suggest that using the client discovery on the LAN should occur first as the application is loading, to obtain the IP address of all PHT on the LAN. A list view then shows the user which devices they can connect. However if the search return 0 results, then the traditional menu system should be loaded. Therefore enabling PMC support as well. I would then use a settings menu to allow for the entering of a server IP when using PHT. Currently the remote discovers my server, but it does not discover my PHT clients.
