View Full Version : Does the Squeezebox Controller(with the screen) work with a SB3 (Classic?)

My remoe control for my SB3 (Classic) is looking a bit worn. I can see you can get a SB Controller, the one with a screen, on Ebay. Will the SB Controller work with a SB3 or will I need to find one of the old style controllers like I have already?

Yes, the SB Controller (part of the Duet) will work fine with all Squeezeboxes, including the SB3/Classic.

The SBC controller with a screen uses wifi to commuicate with SB3. If you want to access the setup part of an Sb3 (e.g. if Sb3 is not connected to network) - you'll need a remote which can do IR. the SBC controller can do IR but it is buried in the test menu and I'm not sure if still works.

Day to day use fine with the controller , but the setup needs the ir remote ( unless you manage with the net::udap script , but that's not guaranteed to work ).

But the OP had the IR remote, it's just scruffy looking.

...and as bpa said, the SB Controller has an IR remote built-in, which even emulates a typical SB IR remote.
