    WIMP + Tinyserver + iPeng

    Will WiMp be able to to play directly from tinyserver in the near future or do I really have to connect to squeezebox.com each time (or maybe I`m missing something here...)? This operation also seems to be difficult for iPeng to handle. Any cure for this? This would really be a killer combination if I could get it streamlined...

    Yes, we plan to release a new SBS version (7.5.2) which will add support for WiMP on Touch among other bug fixes.

    The adventurous could always manually install the plugin on the device...

    Which operation? The only issue I'm seeing with WiMP is that the covers don't work which will be fixed in the next iPeng update.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I`m on 7.6 now, will come earlier on the official version (7.5.2)?

    I`ll try to explaine. I`m able to connect the touch to wimp with the iPeng (and I can actually see the covers, not in the album list though..), but after connected I cant seem to find back the usb library connected to my touch. I`m currently running 7.6 version of the tinyserver. Has my problem anything to do with this?

    Sorry, I don't fully understand what you mean.
    You have to connect to TinySC as a music source if you want to see the local library, obviously, MySB doesn't have your own music.
    And you have to connect to MySB right now to play WiMP, that's the problem with it not being supported by TinySC.

    Just to make sure what we're talking about: you've connected some USB device to your Touch and use it as the source for the Touch's playback?

    7.6 should already have WiMP support.

    Yes :-) I need TinySC for my local library (on the usb disc connected to the touch). Everything works fine with iPeng at this point. I also can start up Wimp from iPeng (via the "my apps" button on ipeng). But; when I connect to wimp (and in the same time MySB) the touch completely disappears from iPeng, and it won`t return before I reconnect it to my local library or my pc library via the touch menu.

    So..yes...I see your point :-)

    Yes, my Touch is connected to an usb drive containing my local library.
    7.6 already have wimp support? I dont need to connect to MySB in order to play music from wimp? Why does it automatically connects to MySB when i start playing an album in wimp?

    Well, you've never connected iPeng to MySB, didn't you?
    You need to do that once to register your device for your MySB account and then iPeng should automatically switch to the other server, too. Or if it doesn't you should at least see the SB under "MySB" so that you can switch manually.
