I have a large collection of FLAC and MP3 files on my home Windows server that I ripped. Almost all the FLAC files are entire album files with embedded CUE sheets. I have WiFi and CAT6 connectivity to my home theater/stereo/TV setup upstairs if necessary.

I am looking for a device or small Linux distro that will play FLAC and MP3 files through my existing Pioneer Elite receiver with the use of a remote. Integration into my TV is a must so I can see and select the song or album I want to play. It has to stream or play the files from my server - I am not interested in an internal HDD.

I believe several hardware options exist for something like this, but there is a kicker. I would prefer something that either downloads, or displays my own cover art with each album. Something in the way Windows Media Center works.

Any suggestions?

have you really looked at a raspberry pi running xbmc at all? I'm pretty sure it will do everything you want.. It even plays 1080p video.

Only $35 for the board.
