Thanks Brian

You can, just enter the squeezecenter URL in the PSP browser followed
by "handheld" to specify the handheld skin. For example:

http://192.168.0.1:9000/handheld/

It will take about 10 minutes to enter that using the PSP "keyboard"
but once it's a favorite it works pretty well.

Did you replace 192.168.0.1 with your server IP?

Hi Ben,

Just to let you know that the PSP shows all the content of my Squeezecenter albums, Last FM, Tags and so on.

Just to put you in the picture i have a Logitech Duet with the wireless remote and i wanted to add asecond remote to use upstairs i.e PSP.

I have since updated my Duet controller to play the music through the headphones and also the mini speaker within the back of the remote i think it was the BETA version.

Anyway when i booted the PSP all the contents came up and amazingly when i pressed a track on the PSP it started playing music through the Duet controller showing the album art on both unit the PSP and the Duet remote.

I stop all music to both units and connected through my duet to the squeezebox and the music will play from the duet remote but not the PSP i thought it might of displayed on both units the current track playing.

What i want to know is can i have 2 controllers PSP and the Duet working toghther. But when i turn of the duet the PSP will not work the music through my squeezebox to the amp any idea on how i can get round this as i am sure it might be a simple case of tweaking things so i can have 2 remote operating upstairs and downstairs sharing the same information and being able to change the track at a press of a button on which ever device i decide to use.

Thanks Brian
