Hi,

I'm not sure I'm posting in the right thread here, but hopefully someone can answer my question! What I'm looking for is a way to display the 'now playing' data from squeeze center on another device, probably in a web browser. Hopefully then I could use this with my Windows 7 media center to display the now playing data on my TV. All I'm really interested in is artist/track and the album art, anything else would be a bonus.

I think it could probably be done with a custom theme, but even that is probably beyond my limited skills!

Thanks in advance!

You could try opening the normal web interface (http://serverip:9000) and then use the "undock player panel" button in the top right corner. Try some of the other skins if you don't like the default one.

There's also a Windows sidebar gadget, but I don't know if it works Win7 yet. Search the forum for that.

Another option is the Moose program for Windows.

I'm sure others will chime in with more ideas...

Thanks, the 'undock player panel' trick is almost exactly what I'm after. It'd just be nice to have the artwork a little bit bigger.

I'll have a play around with Moose and see if that will give me what I"m after. Otherwise I might look at an existing plugin like iPeng and see if I can modify that, I've a feeling that might be a bit outside my skillset though!
