I have speakers in six rooms that are fed from a single SB2 through a Niles multi-zone receiver. I would like a remote to control the SqueezeBox as I move between different rooms. I was thinking of a WiFi PDA like the Dell Axim X50 in conjunction with my Linksys WRT54G. Is anyone doing this? What else should I look at if controlling the SB is the only functionality I expect out of this device?

I'm using a Sone Clie TJ37 -- It uses Palm OS and works just fine with the
Slimserver hand-held skin. It's an orphaned product. You might be able to
find one cheeply on eBay.
