Chapter 12. Project 9, Automating the Home Entertainment Center’s Music Management

We are not quite to the point yet where one electronic device will take care of all of our computing, communication, reading, education, gaming, and entertainment needs. The challenge, at least for now, is to make the best of the home electronics you already have by maximizing the value they present while minimizing the support time required to use and enjoy them. In this context this chapter explores what it takes to set up and use HALultra with the HALdmc (Digital Music Center) add-on. With this add-on, filling your home with the sounds of a custom playlist of your music is but one spoken command away, a benefit that becomes apparent the moment you use it.
