While I've downloaded the slimserver software and can control my software
players, I'd like to see how the slimp player UI looks like. Is there
documentation of this interface somewhere (with pics preferably?)
Interested specifically in 1) how alarm clock works, 2) how synch is setup,
3) can I control vol via web iface, etc.

Thanks,
Mike Beranek

or you can use an emulator which has the display and remote buttons:

(requires comiling with Java SDK

> Interested specifically in 1) how alarm clock works,

you can set it from web UI or player UI. Choose a time, playlist, and volume
level and then set the alarm to ON. This will load the chosen playlist, play at
the selected volume at the chosen time. It recurrs every 24 hours while alarm
is set to ON. There is a plugin for an alarm version that allows settings for
days of the week, and snooze.

> 2) how synch is setup,

web UI, player settings, you can choose from a list of available players to sync
with. Player UI, you ca navigate through the settings menu, scrolling up or
down goes through the list of players. press RIGHT to sync or unsyc.

> 3) can I control vol via web iface, etc.

yup. If the player allows the server to control volume, the skin will show a
set of volume settings. Software players, like winamp, that dont allow the
server to control volume will have nothing in the web interface related to volume.

GREAT! Thanks for the tips.

This is clearly a well-architected product. Bravo.
