Can I transmit audio commands from a device to HTPC?
I have been searching for the better part of a few hours and haven't found any results on this topic. I just built a new HTPC running Win10 Home Premium and have been searching for the perfect remote. Most of the air/fly mice online suck or lack the majority of features I am looking for. I've already created a few custom widgets on my tablets and phones (all Samsung with IR blasters) to open various video sources and control them (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc). What I would like to be able to do is to activate Cortana from my devices. I have found a few ways of making Cortana listen for commands, but this requires a microphone to be present. Is there any way for me to be able press a button (remote, widget, etc) in unified remote and open up Cortana or other voice activated function?
Thanks in advance, and I do apologize if something similar has been asked already. As I've said, I searched for a few hours already on the topic.
It is not possible to send audio from the phone to the HTPC. You could probably start Cortana but you would need to have the microphone connected to the computer.
