    Aren't there several Apps which do that?
    I don't know how tasked works but to get the volume you should use the CLI, preferably through JSON/RPC. Details are in the developer section of the forum.

    I need a widget right on the phone desktop or value% in the notification panel, or on the lockscreen.
    I know about the CLI, use it for play/pause just from shortcut, volume control by hardware phones buttons, but did not find how to get the value of volume((

    <playerid> volume ?
    Gives you the volume, it's all in the CLI documentation.

    OrangeSqueeze and SqueezeCtrl do provide widgets.

    I have been playing with Home Assistant https://home-assistant.io/ which has a Squeezebox component available https://home-assistant.io/components...er.squeezebox/ . According to the entry for this device in my current set up it has "supported_media_commands: 959" so I'm assuming it can do a lot, but to be honest I haven't figured out how to do much more than get it to talk to the server and report on the devices.

    This in conjunction with Harmony Hub http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/harmony-hub and the api https://github.com/maddox/harmony-api , should allow for some easy near term projects, mainly the ability to put my touch/receiver to sleep after a period of inactivity if there's nothing playing. I use the Powersave plugin which works on ip3k devices, but there was no solution for squeezeplay devices until now. It may be cosmetic (I've never measured the power on those devices), but I like it.

    Another near term project is to get a button on the harmony hub smart remote to play a specific favorite. The harmony settings have a button for squeezebox presets, but apparently setting presets on the touch is a little tricky http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...s-on-the-Touch , I also have had problems with presets and dynamic playlists in the past.

    Beyond that I have some other plans if I can figure it out to do more with home assistant. One would be to turn off all the Squeezebox screens (blank screensaver or dim to 0) if no one is home to hopefully extend their life. Another would be to disable the current morning alarm if I get up early and turn on another squeezebox, then re-enable it for tomorrow once the alarm time has past, currently I have to do this manually and sometimes forget to re-enable the alarm clock. Another would be to disable the alarm clock automatically on holidays.

    If I make any progress of interest I will report back.

    Yes, it works through the MobileTelnet. But how to do it in Tasker?

    No idea isn't there a talker forum?
    BTW: you can use the CLI through JSON/RPC, too, have a look at the developer forum section
