    Android Tablet like SB Touch

    Hi,
    I'm intending to use an Android tablet to control my squeezebox player but I would like it to act like my SB Touch used to do:
    1.- display cover-title-etc when playing music and keep screen awake
    2.- display a clock screensaver after a certain time without playing music (and keep screen awake)

    From what I've found, looks like at least Squeeze Ctrl should be able to achieve requirement 1.- but haven't been able to find anything for requirement 2.-

    Anybody out there can give me a hand?

    Thanks!

    For 1. I use Orange Squeeze which works well for me.

    No idea for the clock screen though

    You could also use the material skin.
    Not sure if there is a tablet with always on feature like Samsung galaxy phone. If so then that could be your clock.

    Thanks Edwin.
    To enable screen always on I think there is some developer setting that can be used, as well as some applications like Keep Screen On, Stay Alive and Wakey.
    I'll ad the material skin to the list.

    I purchased and downloaded Orange Squeeze. Now what?

    I purchased and downloaded Orange Squeeze. How do you get this to work? No instructions.

    You need to specify your LMS server in Orange Squeeze's settings somewhere (I don't have it at hand) so that it's able to connect.

    when you open the app it should try to connect to your LMS.

    Make sure lms is running

    You may see a screen with LMS showing, tap and connect.

    if you get a connection error message tap the three vertical dots on the top right hand side

    Hi tdehan,
    please don't hijack threads. I was about to update this one and now will have to create a new one so that contents make sense
