Thanks for the info, I'll give it a shot.  One question though - when total remote says it uses you PPC audio hardware, I assume that means the headphone jack, am I wrong?

>Kinda... You cannot control the server from GSPLayer, so you just point

>stop/play shuffle etc from there. I am having some playback issues, some



>pauses in the music. Not sure if I'm streaming too high a bit rate...
