Thread: Remote control

    Remote control

    My first post with my shinny new SB3 :-).

    I'm looking for a way to start the squeeze box up remotely playing a preset channel, ultimatley I'm looking to intergrate it with a home automation system such that I press Dining on a wall switch, the lights change etc. and say, a soft Jazz station starts playing.

    Obvoiusly one way would be to blast IR to the device but that would rely on knowing its state. I undertand that you can control the unit via TCPIP? Any pointers on how I might start playing preselected music or radio stations?

    Thanks in advance, Gary

    You can use the web interface (if your system supports doing web
    requests). Or the command line interface (CLI - about the best documented
    part of the whole server!). You'll find all the technical details in the
    help section available from the web interface.

    Thanks for that it looks as though the easiset way might be to setup the music in favorites and then call these. Problem tis my system can't send TCPIP but RS232. I'm wondering if a serial to ethernet converter could work?

    Time to start playing. Just wondered what other peoples approach has been.
