I was thinking about making my RPi like a music hub, that I can control from my phone. So say I'm at home and want to paly same music, I just get my phone out and select the song I want. I was thinking about using RaspBMC an Yatse but I eventually want it to be a notification centre so when a mail arrives to me it says me I've got a mail through the speakers. Does someone know any program/way to do this? Thanks in advanced.

Raspbmc is the best approach. You can use as a Music/Video hub. There are many addons to use on demand content as well. You can control with your phone using the official XBMC app.

There is a email addon, but I never use it. Google it and see if fits in your needs.

A nice feature is this notification that you spoke, if you receive a call or message, a notification will pop up in your TV.

  • Sorry, I was in a rush and didn't remember to ask the question. It is if someone knows any program/way that can do what I am trying to do. Edited. Thanks for remembering. :)

  • But if I want to make it for example to notice me when I get a new WhatsApp, could I use for example EventGhost to do that?

  • Oh man, you really wants to concentrate everything in your Rpi. No, eventghost doesn't do this, but you can make a extension if you want. Search for Yowsup. Commented Feb 21, 2014 at 20:44
