Squeezebox Yahoo Widget
  Posted by: AceBHound on Apr 3rd, 2006 10:51 PM
Still no new update to SlimServerMon, the Yahoo/Konfabulator widget for Squeezeboxen. I kinda get a kick out of going to the release page & seeing that the author still hasn't updated it. I've been looking forward to the updated release that's supposedly been ready since 11/05. It's unfortunate for the many individuals who are interested in such a simple/stupid application.

Then again, my fixed/rewritten version isn't without its bugs -- but that I can blame on the Slim Server's XML feed. For instance, if I'm running Pandora none of the cover art / song time remaining, etc updages because it's using the Slim Network and not information local to the server. I'd like to take a stab at accessing the data by another method -- there's a custom data port for interacting with the Squeezebox, but I'm not sure what the limits are with the information it has access to.. or for that matter if it's bug-free itself.
