Hi,
Just wanted to know before I start a large work on this, did someone
already develop control of slimserver from an AMX automation system ?
Thanks in advance

Yes.

The CLI interface, as it exists, is insufficient for the task.
Additionally, other interfaces are problematic for a variety of reasons.

The end result:

1) Fred Thomas has extended the CLI interface as necessary (not yet checked
in), and
2) I've written a NetLinx module to drive the Squeezeboxes (by talking to
the SlimServer CLI).

It's still being tested. If you're serious about testing, then send me
E-Mail privately, and I'll start working with you to test as well. If not,
then hang out, and it will be released once the CLI modifications are merged
and testing is complete.
