View Full Version : possible to control squeezebox with external buttons?

Is it possible to interface some external buttons to a Squeeze Box? Could be as simple as having, say, 5 buttons that trigger 5 different playlists. I suppose I could hack a universal remote, but I'd like to avoid the hassles of IR if possible.

Ideally I'd like to interface it with an old diner-style jukebox... Is that sort of thing possible?

Thanks for any help. Right about to order my first Squeeze Box, been watching from the sidelines for awhile, definitely time to get one of these beasts.

There's the "Favorite" plugin with which you can a playlist or song to any
of the remote's numerical keys.
