    Re: question about realse

    We have sniffed a Rhapsody stream and can emulate the adding of multiple tracks - but (there always is), our emulation crashes the sonos hand held controller, rather than adding the tracks from the m3u playlist, it will be a very simple thing that is causing the issue, but we have hit a brick wall as far as finding out what is happening 'on the other side of the fence'?

    Therefore, are we to infer that this functionality is not in the cards for Asset? Asset is truly great, just wish I had multi-add for my Sonos. :smile2:

    We require a little help from sonos to find out what is happening.

    Album Art also seems to be broken in Sonos. Interestingly though it shows up in the tooltip when browsing the tree. Is this a known limitation?

    We know about this also, but cannot spy on Rhapsody (atleast the desktop client) as it does not send album art.

    Thanks. Odd though that the art *is* being sent for tooltips both for the Sonos Desktop Controller and the handheld controller? :confused:

    Yes the tool tip shows album art, not hte main display (the sonos does not ask for the artwork)

    It is very sad that Asset UPnP looks and works great in almost every way but the ability to work perfectly with Sonos at the controller level.

    Spoon have Sonos not been any help at all. I know several of us have raised this on the forums, hoping that it would get Sonos to start talking to you.

    I will make another post and hopefully we can get more people to add to it.
    From the software controller Asset is quite usable, but most people would want to use either the hardware controller which is hard work or the iPod controller which does not work at all.

    Still Asset is a great piece of work that has come from nowhere in a short period of time. Looking forward to seeing it develop further.

    Thanks a lot Spoon.

    Mike

    We are in contact with Sonos, lets see where it leads...

    I second Mike's sentiments. Asset is much appreciated, and it's a shame the shortcomings with the Sonos controllers persist. A simple script to feed an album's worth of tracks from the Asset tree into the Desktop Controller queue helps somewhat.

    The lack of any facility for uPnP/Rhapsody in the Sonos iPod controller is a pain. Any suggestions of suitable 3rd party control points for iPhone/iPod which successfully play with ZonePlayers (and Asset of course) would be very welcome.

    I have not tried but PlugPlayer on the iPod Touch / Phone, should be ok.

    Hi Spoon,

    some weeks ago you posted that you are in contact with Sonos, concerning the better integration of Asset UPnP in Sonos - e.g. the possibility to "use" it via Sonos' iPod/iPhone controller (maybe without PlugPlayer).

    Can you give us any hints what can we expect in the (near) future ?

    Not sure about the ipod, it could already be implemented on that?

    It was the option of adding an albums worth of tracks in one click.
