Maybe something like Streaming Media. Then External Devices could even
be Remote Media, as opposed to media on disks or devices directly
plugged into the computer.

Right-click on the category name? A label like "1/3 active" for example?
A tiny icon to show that some or all are disabled, a prompt to click
here for more?

Unless they are all always activated by default, I tend to disagree.
