Hi Jeff.

We would be implementing this in about a month so I can wait for the
release. Does it work over TCP/IP or do you need an ethernet to serial box
like this: http://neteon.net/cat.asp?c=13 ?

Do you have any preliminary documentation that I could look at?

Thanks again,

-Ivan

It works over TCP/IP, of course. Be sure that your NetLinx controller is on
the same subnet as the SlimServer, and you'll have no problems. Be aware
that my module talks to the SlimServer, not to the Squeezebox itself.

I'll send recent documentation to you privately to not clutter up this list
with attachments.

Hi Ivan,
It works directly through TCP/IP connection from your netlinx master !
I'm one of the tester Jeff talked about :) All you need is your wired
panel or a bidirectionnal wireless panel, a netlinx master and your
SlimServer and network connection between them :)
Hope it helps you
