I'm toying with the idea of getting a PDA or similar device to control my Squeezeboxen. From what I can tell neither SlimRemote, Telcanto, nor the nokia770 skin offer a way to access the Rhapsody portion of Slimserver. I know the handheld skin would work, but it's obviously not as slick or responsive as the other options. Am I missing something? What are the rest of you using to control Rhapsody on a PDA/handheld device?

There's currently no CLI support for the Rhapsody plugin available.
SlimRemote therefore has no way to access it.

I see. Thanks, Michael. Hopefully that gets added as the higher-priority items get worked out.

Perhaps someone has the definitive answer: you can't run Slimremote on a nokia 770 at this point, can you? I think I'd prefer the nokia 770 skin anyhow, but it'd be nice to know what my options are. It looks like ewe will eventually be ported to the 770, if java doesn't make it there first, but neither of these is currently available, right? Thanks

Well, adding it to the CLI doesn't mean, it will automatically be added to
the applications you mention :-).

No. I once saw someone mention compiling the Ewe runtime for the Nokia.
But as he said it was a "let's have some fun compiling" thing, not a
serious attempt to do the port.

Currently there doesn't seem to be any development on Ewe :-(. Many of us
are waiting for bugfixes which were announced months ago. But Ewe's author
seems to be eaten up by a paid project.

I don't think Java would be a solution for running Ewe on the Nokia. It's
imho too fat.
