Is the Duet controler compatablible with Squeezebox 3. ie can it be used as an extra Receiver?

Can the SBController control an SB3 you mean?

Sure. It can even control a SliMP3 or Softsqueeze. (Though the latter would be sort of silly...)

Think of the SBR as an SB3 with no display. It has a few extra things (like adhoc networking to the SBC and the funky multicolor LED) but beta testing with the remote was done with SB3's since the SBR didn't exist.

The SBR actually did exist but was only sent to a handful of beta testers to keep it secret.
At one point information about the SBR leaked through when a beta tester posted some issues with his beta unit in the forum.
That post was removed in no time.
