Thank you for your kindly reply.

Yes, i just want to make a simple MediaRenderer device by myself.
As you know the currently are implemented weakly and expensive.
And I want to listen musci only.

But I don't know how the TVs and WD TV Live+ are implemented, i try to run VLC on an linux machine with cheap hardware.
Hope VLC can run as a  MediaRenderer(media player?) and then i don't need to buy a TVs or other devices. 

And it can be controlled from android using software like your wrote before.

Window Media Player can work as an MediaPlayer, MediaServer and MediaRender.
So i sent before email to ask whether VLC can do those things too.

Do you think it's possible write a patch for VLC to make it work as a mediarender?

Out of vlc topic, 
Do you know any other player can be used on linux as an mediarender ? 

Thank you!
