Heh... yeah, that will do it, however you may find the 7" tablet a bit unwieldy for remote use. (That's how I ended up with an android phone as I already had a nexus7 as well... ;) ).

Another thing to keep in mind is that home theater amps are now typically networked which allows your android device to control that as well (my onkyo works great for this).

Not sure where I read it, but there was a recent article suggesting that we probably won't see any more new ipod models, and that MP3 players are pretty much going to go the way of the dodo... again... WTH would you pay $100+ for a dedicated mp3 player when you can get a wifi enabled android phone w/ 32G for $70.
