Since cents are being given freely...

How about player only with a video output of the player interface. This
combined with IR remote control could yield a TV based control. Properly
modulated it could be used throughout the house. (For those few rooms
without PC's)

Thanks,

Richard

I also strongly believe there is a market for "player only" players.

In whole home or commercial settings, the display is not needed for many
players. For instance, in a commercial setting, a restaurant, retail outlet
would start it and forget it. They would probably use the web front end to
create playlists and control the player. They would probably use a hardware
volume control for volume. As for a whole home system, since one would
probably use the players synced with another player, I could see a player
serving an outside space being used without a display or traditional remote.

My two cents.

At the right price, I'd certainly be in the market for one or two of these.

When I asked about such a device a while back (it would be PERFECT for
whole house audio/video), it was suggested I just buy multiple
squeezeboxes and sync them :) In fact, by pointing a video camera at
mine, it's kinda similar (but nowhere near as nice!).
