I'm thinking that next year I'll seriously look into building a small HTPC so I've got a reliable device on which to play Blu-rays (without having to worry about region codes), DVDs, MP3s, downloaded videos, streams etc. I might even use it for Steam Streaming, though that's not much of a priority.
However, what I'm hoping is that I'll find a way of controlling it remotely that is as user-friendly as possible and that allows me to play music via the HTPC (which would be hooked up to my sound system) without having to switch on the TV. My idea, which may be entirely naive, is to run Win 10 in Metro mode and remote desktop on my iPad 3 (since I've now got an iPad Air 2 for everyday use).
Is this feasible? Is it something that can be made to work well? Or are there aspects to this that I'm obviously ignorant of and that change things?
