- Replicates almost all of the functionality of a SqueezeBox Controller, including the plugin apps.
- A device using webOS version 1.4 or higher
- SqueezeBox players using a SqueezeBox Server as their music source. Does
NOT work with MySqueezebox.com (it might work with the SqueezeBox Touch as the server - not tested)
- SqueezeBox Server version 7.4 or better. (It should work with 7.0 or higher, but you might lose some functionality and/or icons)

Can you give a few more details about how the UI works, I think I did not understand all of the items on the screen in the lists.
2010-05-01, 02:52 #3
I'm guessing the part you don't understand are the 'plus' buttons and the down arrow buttons.
The plus buttons adds the item to the playlist.
The down arrows opens a drawer under the item to show other options for the item. Basically the same as pressing the plus key on a SB Controller.
The 'plus' buttons with a little down arrow combines the two functions. A tap adds to the playlist. Tap and hold opens the drawer.

Yep. That was it. Ehen do they show up? Can I select between them?

The down arrow only shows in the current playlist screen. Which and if the plus button shows up is determined by the menu data that I get from the server. The two versions of the plus button shows up when there's an Add action associated with the item. The combo plus/arrow button shows when the item has a More action.

Pippin, I've got a question for you. How did you get ipeng working with mysqueezebox.com? I know the site supports the same communication mechanisms (json-rpc, cometd) as a stand alone server, but what's the login procedure?
I haven't really looked into it yet and it might be obvious when I do, but heck it doesn't hurt to ask, right?

So you are processing the menus?
Can you also play items? Or just add?
2010-05-01, 11:55 #8
Yes, I'm processing the menus and it is a pain. They really need to have some consistency in the menu data.
Tapping anywhere else on a playable item plays it.

Yes, I noticed they tend to change stuff. Even from 7.4.2 to 7.5, I had to make a change to account for some minor difference. Let's hope that they're least moving towards a more consistent and logical layout.
The only test I did with MySB was to just point my app to it to see if worked, it didn't. I haven't really looked at what I'm getting back from MySB.
Writing the app pretty much zapped a month of my life, and I'm a little burned out with it. I'll definitely shoot you an email when I start to really look into it.--------------
