Its great but would be better if you could change the equalizer like with TuneConnect. I don't use TuneConnect anymore but would like to see the implementation of equalizer support in Remote Remote...IMO.

Great work. I tasted it with iTunes 4.9 on a G4 Dual and with my Powerbook. If you can make a extra window for a playlist view this will be better than use the playlist as a pulldown list.
Go on it work's.

One word.... "SAaaWEeeT!
Great functions, simple interface, easy of use - "straight out of the box!"

I've been fart'n around for the llast couple years putting together an iTunes music server in an 'ole DTG3. Old school - hard wired from ethernet network to the mini stereo cable from the basement music server to the home stereo upstairs.

Remote Remote totally and simply completed my set up! No running to the basement anymore for volume control, or music selection. Any Mac on the network now can control what's played on the stereo.

REQUEST:
One request, if possible?
My wife loves listening to internet radio. Is there a way to actually be able to select the different stations. This would be nice feature!

Thanks again !! LooOOOve IT!

what's the point? Simply share the music on different networked computers using iTunes. Control access and volume to any speakers in he house via iTunes. This software is totally redundant.

Nice little app, but the authorization is a little scary. First, it doesn't use the standard keychain authorization dialog box that the other apps use in Tiger. Second, it always asks for the username and password even if I selected "Add to keychain?" last time. It never remembers the info, or never retrieves it from the keychain, because I have to type in the info every time I start up the program. One is left wondering if the authorization dialog box is fake or security-flawed or meant to transmit your login info somewhere. I don't think so, but the odd authorization behavior is unsettling.

easy tiger, there is no code in remote remote regarding authentication. the authentication is built in to the remote apple events protocol and how it behaves is out of my control. there were definitely some issues with it in panther and i don't know how many of them were worked out in tiger. the main issue in panther was that you couldn't use certain charcters ie. / ? # % :

see the troubleshooting section of the readme for more info

This is a great app. Just when I was getting ready to start learning applescript so I could do this myself, I find this. The two things that are bummers: A) it can't start iTunes and B) you can't change the output to an airport express. I believe A is not possible with remote apple events, and B is not actually a scriptable function within iTunes.

Still, great little app. For what it does, it does it very well.

Great app. The only thing missing for me are keystrokes that are identical to iTunes.

0.9.6 release notes say "Keychain issues resolved" but it still asks me for full login information on start even though I checked "Add to Keychain." This is 0.9.6b according to the About box.

Nice improvements otherwise.

after you fill in the "As user" field in the login drawer, it should ask bring up the authentication window the first time and subsequent connections should work with the keychain as long as you keep the "As user" field filled in correctly. if your ip changes you will have to authenticate again. hope this helps. email me directly if you have futher problems

Yes, that was it! Now that I have filled in "As user" it no longer asks for authentication. I use static IP addresses on this network so changing IPs should not be a problem.

Thank you for the quick reply even though I recognize this site is not an official support channel.
