    Does anyone know if there is a piece of affordable kit that does the following:-
    A box that sits in my living room and squirts digital SPDIFF into my amp from my PC music collection upstairs.

    Preferably with:-
    Just one cable connection (network or usb perhaps?) that allows remote controll of PC software playing MP3s and other audio formats.
    Even better if it can display the track name / file name downstairs for easy navigation.

    I heard that microsofts XBOX would have a 3rd party application developed for it that would do just that even navigation via the TV screen. I havent seen any details tho :(

    Does creatives Audioligy thing do all the above (except the display of course). Problem is it's quite expensive and half way towards a new DVD player that can do all formats and MP3.


    Thanks for any ideas
