I'm looking for a remote with wide coverage (front & back deck, second story and basement) and since the RC9800i has WiFi, I should be able to extend the coverage with WiFi range extenders. I see that Philips has it's own media server on the PC. Can it control other PC based players like Winamp?
I have an exisitng "g" wireless network, Nice to see that it supports WPA. Since this unit is 802.11b only, could I run two networks from the same PC - one "b" and the other a "g"?

This remote doesn't use WiFi for controlling the devices such as equipement in the basement (unlike the NevoSL). The WiFi is used to control an UpNp server/renderer combination, such as a sl400i of philips (not many more devices are compatible).

I think you might want to look into the NevoSL or the latest pronto model TSU9600 [Link:] (I don't know the specs but this one might be more suitable for your use). Both suggestion are much more expensive.

Best regards,
