    Then you will need to know the specs of the equipment.

    You'd need to know the specs and get some idea as to what you want to use as the controller. Perhaps something like mControl running through Windows Media Centre could be the overall option for you, or you could look to use iPhone home automation solutions and tie them in with some of the very cool iPhone remote control options.
