    Can I use old SqueezeBox Controller remote to control my Sonos via LMS and uPnPBridge

    Bit of a weird use-case here, but I'm wondering if I could pick up an old Logitech SqueezeBox Controller remote control from Ebay and use it to control the volume on my Sonos gear via uPnpBridge? I generally prefer a physical remote over using a phone app, or messing around with web interface for quick volume changes.

    I use LMS exclusively to control my Sonos Move using Philippe's fantastic uPnPBridge plugin - this allows me to bypass Sonos's 65K track limit and LMS also nicely transcodes any hi-res files to 24/48 for Sonos playback.

    Anyway, I was looking at the IKEA Symfonisk remotes for use as a physical volume control, then wondered if the old SqueezeBox remotes would also work?

    Edit: also, I can't quite work out if the controller connects directly to LMS or if I additionally need the receiver or duet for everything to work?

    Thanks
    Pete

    The SB Controller should work just fine (NOT the IR remote controls).

    Thanks for the confirmation. Might give this a go as it works out cheaper than buying the Ikea remote & gateway, plus I get additional functionality

    forgive the thread hijack, but you've got me thinking now, does the controller run Jivelite? is there a base OS that could be tinkered with?
