    PDA-controller SlimControl 0.95

    Hello everybody

    SlimControl is a software remote control for Squeezeboxes.
    It runs on PDAs and smartphones under WM 2003, 5.0, 6.0 and 6.1.

    After several months of steady improvement, version 0.95 is available for download.
    Thanks so much to all of you contributing.

    I am opening this thread as a successor to http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=62486
    which has grown too long indeed. Please post any bugs, suggestions, or critics here.


    The attached screenshots were taken from version 0.94
    but they pretty much give you an idea of the user interface.

    A manual is available, however it has not yet been updated to reflect version 0.95.

    Of the vast list of features offered by SqueezeCenter, I am currently supporting the following:
    - Browse by genre, album, artist
    - Browse radio plugins, playlists, favorites
    - Display and edit the current playlist
    - Control multiple players (no synchronization yet)
    - Album covers

    Requirements:
    - Arm (v4) or PXA processor
    - 32 MB or higher
    - Windows Mobile 2003 - 6.1
    - Network connectivity
    - Screen resolutions
    ....240x320 (native)
    ....480x640 (scaled up, poorer quality)
    ....other A/R (screen not filled)

    Download here: http://sc.sciatec.de/

    SlimControl was developed on a Pocket Loox 600 (WM 2003) from the last millenium.
    It is not a skin. It is an WM application.

    Very cool and I can tell its more stable than .92 right off the bat. Took me a couple of minutes to figure out how the new "list" style icons work but I eventually did.

    Would love to be able to "drill into" the song listing of an album from the cover flow.

    Great work! THANKS!!!

    playlist management

    Hi Locuth,

    Very nice app, well done for getting it this far! I've found a use for an old HTC Prophet - shame the battery is a bit dodgy

    Anyway, is there a known issue/feature with the way the app handles updates to the existing now playing list? While I was using it yesterday, I noticed that everytime a track was played the reported number of tracks in the playlist reduced by 1 (see below). I haven't done much investigation but I will.

    The actual number of tracks according to web ui and wand (SB3) remained constant but SlimControl reported less. If I removed all the tracks from the playlist using SlimControl, then closed the playlist and re-opened it, it reported the old (previously played) tracks. It's like it was reporting a 'window' of tracks, not the total list?

    Hope that makes sense I'll have a more scientific play today and let you know. I know I did stuff like

    . start with an empty now playing list
    . add an album and start playing
    . add a track or two from another album as next to play
    . add a playlist (as either next up or at end)

    I basically played with the playlist add/insert/append features.

    thanks

    N

    You found a bug there - Thanks
    I already located the problem in the code
    and will post an updated version today.

    While I was using it yesterday, I noticed that everytime a track was played the reported number of tracks in the playlist reduced by 1 (see below). I haven't done much investigation but I will.
    The decimal in the playlist was actually supposed to be an index starting at the 1st visible item.
    While the final track of the paylist is playing, it will have index 1, and the PL will have length 1.
    The bug you reported might mess with that.

    This is still in 0.95

    This is fixed for me in 0.95

    Sh-t - you are right. It seemed to be so straighforward, that I never tested it actually.
    As the popup menu works, I can do nothing about it:
    While the menu is up, it captures all input even outside any of the menu buttons. (So it knows when to collapse)
    No other button is active while the menu is up. If you'd consider this a major drawback, I'll reconsider.

    Vista instalation

    I did the Vista instalation. (Update) For reasons i do not know now i have to try more than once. because it was announced another update is running. But at least it runs well.

    Hmmm if someone have other layout pictures, the new installation or update override the old pictures or layout.
