Hi there

Just about to buy a squeezebox. Wanted to save money
(!) and get the wire version, not the wireless one.
Will this still allow me to use things like Telcanto
remote control over wireless? I assume the telcanto
device communicates with the Slimserver software
rather than the Squeezebox, or am I wrong??

Also, sorry for my lack of understanding, but if I use
Telcanto on a PocketPC, is there a big delay in
selecting songs, then the actual commands reaching the
Squeezebox.

Thanks

Bodgery.

No, you're right. The device only receives music streams over the net and
sends signals from the IR remote back to the server. But everything is
server-driven.

No idea, as I don't know Telcanto :-/. But usually response times are very
quick. I often use the handheld skin with my pda's web browser. And
selecting a song will play it immediately.
