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?

What model of Pioneer Elite receiver? My Pioneer VSX-1122-K plays my FLAC files off my media server over the network using DLNA.. It has an onscreen display as well.. If yours has similar function you already have what you need.

It is an older Pioneer Elite receiver. I don't believe it has that functionality. If it did, would it be able to read CUE files (embedded or otherwise)?

Raspbmc? Interesting. How is it compared to Geexbox?
