Tested with iTunes 4.9 and 5.0 under Tiger (both "client" and "server" side). I didn't understand the search string, I have a -1708 error when I click on the "Play new track" button whatever the input is. no sound control (for 0.6 ? :) it should be nice to have more information on the current track (elapsed/total time for exemple) When the Remote iTunes is playing songs, the controls work (except "play new track"). Keep on, keep on !

Correct my if I'm wrong but the device you are trying to control has to be Apple right? Any suggestion as to how I can control my itunes on a PC? THanks

This doesn't appear to be working anymore after I updated the Music Server running iTunes to v10. The Client can connect OK and shows me the Growl notification, but after that the client can't see the Music Library. It just says (null) (null). Also, the Bug Report submission doesn't work, as it redirects to a site called 16bugs which the developer hasn't renewed. I call Abandonware.

I love this program, and how I wish it had been updated. Maybe one day it will be. When it's working correctly, it's great, but I find the server software often needs to be restarted, which kind of kills the benefit of having a remote. I use my old iPhone next to my Mac as a more reliable remote, but I'd really rather just have it available on my main screen. I use Tuneconnect still, but sooner or later it craps out on me. Sometimes I just use screen sharing and shrink the window to iTunes size..

Wonderful Software !!! Thanks !!! I have three little suggestions that would make the program perfect for me and I'm sure others would enjoy those too: -> Auto-connect option when the program first starts -> option to have a menu bar icon only (hiding the one in the dock), and thus add a "show main window" under that menu bar icon menu (when hiding the application with command+H) -> add keyboard shortcut options for volume up +1 /down -1

Great software! Just the thing I was looking for! It is fast, stable and doesn't need much cpu power. Ideal for controling iTunes on desktop machine from portable. The only free product of this kind which a found with big resizeable window with all playlist and songs in iTunes style. EQ and Visuals control are also nice. The only thing you will need to control playback on remote machine.

Great program. Would use it more often, but it needs a very long time for loading the tracks in a playlist (the "relaod playlist") button. My library has ca. 8000 Tracks, and i work over WLAN. At my friend's iMac it works perfektly. Though he has a little smaller library.

Great app - works perfectly. A feature request though: would it be possible to browse tracks on an iPod that is plugged in?

That's a good idea, and you're not the only one to suggest it. I'll see what I can do about getting that working in a future version :) -Matt
