    Does anyone know if any amplifiers that can yet be added to a home network and controlled via a Windows PC - specifically switching speaker channels, volume etc.. I know this can be achieved via infra-red, though I am trying to control a multi-room system using a central PC. Perhaps technology hasn't come this far as yet. Any ideas.

    Yes... but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of hte software. I downloaded it from a link on the Rotel HTGuide forum.

    Usually you will need an amp with a RS232 connection or similar and then you can basically plug a serial cable into it from your PC and then use an interface on your pc to control it.

    ... Yes software is out there... i'll try to hunt down the name of some later and post it here if i get a chance :)
