View Full Version : Are there any plans for a standard 2-way remote

I'm in the market for a Squeezebox like unit.

The only feature I wish the Squeezebox had was a true 2 way remote
(with an on remote LCD). I realize it would up the price a bit but
in quantity, a bluetooth remote with LCD wouldn't add that much.

Perhaps it could be an option?

I don't have a PDA. I could maybe see myself buying a bluetooth Palm
but I don't have a Mac server so that rules out SailingClicker and there I
can't see myself buying a WiFi enabled handheld.

thanks

Tony

I use a Tungsten T3 and use the built in web browser to log into
slimserver on an XPsp2 boxen via a bluetooth AP. Works fine, but the BT
AP/T3 combo is a tad laggy. I suspect a direct link to the server via
wifi (since BT appears borked under SP2) would be much faster. My only
other problem is transmitting the username password combo to the
slimserver. Via a standard web browser I use:
http://username:password@myslimserver:9000/Default/ but the palm browser
doesn't appear to recognise this syntax and entering a username password
every time can get a bit wearing.

My letter to Santa this year might have to include a request for a
web-pad or tablet PC. Well, I have been a very good boy! ;-)

Best regards,
Geoff

I'm not password protecting my server at the moment - is there any
real need to with a WEP enabled wireless network? I't's inside my
router so shouldn't be visible to the outside world.
