    No need Mayhem 3 works very well My issue on a 7" tablet isn't visibility (800x400) it is the usability. Sometime the UI isn't phone/thumb friendly. The library is good, except for the tinyurl problem I wrote about in another post, and I especially like how the right side is clear for navigation. The guide isn't too bad (and can be zoomed easily) but when you get to the dialogs to record they are awkward.

    In regards to Air Video, it has free server component. The app itself if $5. It supports 3 different streaming models. If the video is already in a compatible format, it will stream the video directly to your iphone. If it is not compatible, it can do a live conversion or a batch conversion for later.
    Windows 7 Premium 32-Bit, Intel i5 750, ASUS P7P55D, 4gb ram, ATI RADEON HD 4550, 5 sata drives, HVR2250, HDPVR, COMSKIP, PCH A100, EGreat 34a, VideoReDo, SA 4240HDC

    I'd second the request for either a mobile-optimized NEWA or maybe even an iPhone/Android direct application? That would really rock...

    I'm definitely less interested in actually streaming content as I am in being able to view the guide and setup recordings easily.

    I have had some serious thinking into doing an Android App for NPVR. I have the right tech background and it would be a very nice starting project to wet my feet in the Android space. So this is definately on my TODO list. However, time is the issue. I am about to start some very tough projects at work so I am not sure I will have any spare time for this hobby project. But it would sure be fun!

    The focus of the project would be to create a GUI that is made specifically for Android devices, using allt the best the technology can bring to create a smooth experiance. Functionality wise it would be someting like a mix of NEWA with streaming support and also work as a really great remote for the NPVR viewing.

    Keep you fingers crossed...

    @Barsk: I've actually just started on an Android app although initially I'm only looking to provide EPG access and the ability to set/cancel recordings. After that, a 'Search Guide' ability but that's as far as I'm planning so far.

    I personally don't have any interest in streaming video at the moment (too expensive/unreliable using mobile internet and pretty pointless over wi-fi when I'm home). Streaming music, however, is a possible option I was thinking about but not a priority.

    If you find time in the future and want to compare notes then send me a PM.

    Cheers,

    Are you able to play a file that is currently recording with Air Video.

    Interesting idea - I suppose it would be possible to have software running on the PC which impersonated a PC remote receiver or mouse/keyboard but which was actually receiving commands via wi-fi or bluetooth. Not something I've ever looked at as I generally just use an MVP.

    Sure will do. As a newbie into development towards the NPVR as a whole I have many questions, and I have done none research so far. I guess you access EPG data etc via the NEWA interface?
