    Talkback IR

    Does squeezebox have talkabck IR? I've gotten
    used to my Xantech IR repeaters having a little
    red LED that blinks back at me when an IR command
    has been received. Slimp3 doesn't do talkback, but
    it's pretty obvious when you press a button - at
    least when using the devices as intended - which
    brings me to my next question.

    It seems like I could use the squeezebox as a
    remote IR receiver. Can I somehow make my slimserver
    an IR repeater/hub kind of thing so that I could
    control the rest of my whole house a/v setup? The path
    would be through the squeezebox to the server and then
    out to the xantech repeater to control a DVD player, VCR,
    DVR, tuner, amp, whatever.

    Has someone done this? Was all the talk about xAP
    related to this? I've looked at it, but I can't seem to
    find any info on an IR piece that emits a signal that I
    could install in my server.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    The xap-slimserver connector definately sends out "alien" IR commands as
    unique xAP messages.
    Can you ask this over at xap-automation
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/xap_automation/
    Someone may already have this setup.

    Might this be of any use?
    http://www.redrat.co.uk/start.htm
    Or there's a RS232 to IR module from Xantech
    http://www.xantech.com/


    You've given me some lovely control ideas for my own setup :-)
    I'm thinking for myself:-

    slimserver IR xAP event -> homseer software -> comfort IR output
    or
    slimserver IR xAP event -> xAP comfort -> comfort IR output
