iPod Touch App - Controlling M1001

I put out the challenge Smiley Very Happy
Now that Apple has released their SDK for iPhone/iPod Touch, let's see who can come up with a robust app for controlling the Roku M1001 similar to Visual mr (using iTunes not slim server). If anyone finds anything, please post it to the forum. Thanks - Derek

In the interium, you can use a poor mans method, I use my Nintendo DS with a WiFi card to access my local network at my house and enter the Soundbridge's IP address followed with "/SoundBridgeNP.html" and I can controll and access some stuff. The address is case sensitive BTW.

e.g. http://192.168.36.244/SoundBridgeNP.html
Roku3 and Roku HD1000 [Rev B] on a Samsung HLP5674W DLP in the living room; a Roku2 and two Roku XS and a few SoundBridges.Win7; Kubuntu and XP via RT-N66U, E2000 and a switch or two. I own stock in Roku, it's just all in the form of hardware.Viva la Roku

Re: iPod Touch App - Controlling M1001

I've managed to get hold of a mac and have been making a player. Just wanted to query the people who would be interested what music servers do they use. I have a firefly here, which is what I used to develop the app. I hope to get the app to the app store by next week, so please reply quickly guys!

Re: iPod Touch App - Controlling M1001

can u open up command prompt/terminal, connect to your device using:

telnet IPADDRESS 5555

then type in: ListServers

look at results and see which one itunes comes up in the list (starting at row 0)

then type in: ServerConnect ROWNUMBER

then type: ServerGetCapabilities

Can you then write the results you get here please.



Eg: for my setup I get: (Restart ur device and leave it on standby)

telnet 192.168.1.2 5555
-> roku: ready
ListServers
-> MusicServer (my firefly server)
-> InternetRadio
-> FMRadio
-> AMRadio
ServerConnect 0
ServerGetCapabilities
-> ServerGetCapabilities: QuerySupport: Partial
-> ServerGetCapabilities: Containers: no
-> ServerGetCapabilities: Playlists: yes
-> ServerGetCapabilities: PartialResults: yes
-> ServerGetCapabilities: TransactionComplete

Hopefully that makes it easier to understand

Re: iPod Touch App - Controlling M1001

First off, many thanks for taking on this task. An Iphone/Ipod touch would be fantastic.

I vote for Firefly as the first music server target for the app. I know many of us are already using it, since it works well with Roku. For those not already taking advantage of Firefly, it doesn't seem to be difficult to install and get working (at least it went smoothly for me, as far as I can remember). And there are plenty of posts in these forums should people need help with Firefly.

Good luck. As a programing moron, I'm always amazed by what people can develop. Smiley Happy
