Figured it out, needed to install the pulseaudio-module-zeroconf package
and then it worked.  I had assumed that all the Zeroconf stuff was in
order due to the fact that padevchooser could see the PA server on the
HTPC box, but I suppose it has an internal Zeroconf implementation which
the PA server does not.

So now I think I'm almost there, but when I attempted to move a stream
to the HTPC box the local PA server chrashed after a split second on
audio output on the stereo.  I'll have to debug that a bit further
before I have something concrete to report though, but in any case thank
very much you for your help so far!

Best regards,
