    I sent a list of problems to Rich, I bugged him several times to get some news, and he said Wade was working on it...

    The media API is implemented in the latest version of the iTunes DAAP plugin so in HSTouch designer, you should now see your iTunes DAAP instance when you try to add a music browser template to a screen. You can try it, but last time I checked it was still very buggy.

      Spud, would you be able to post a known issues section so we can get an idea of what's not working in regards to HSTouch? AFAIK, the cover art and some buttons are not working for me. I wanna make sure it's not something I'm doing wrong and just a bug in the Media API.

        Actually at this point I would not recommend to use the Media API because last time I tested, there were a lot of things that didn't work properly.
        Note that for everything except browsing your music, you can use the HS devices (cover, title, play, pause, etc...) to integrate iTunes in HSTouch

          What about playlists? That is probably what I would use the most in HSTouch. The ability to be out by the pool and select and play different playlists for entertainment.

            Could you just make a screen with buttons for each of the commonly used playlists?

              I think he could just made playlists a HS device that's a drop down list. That's how it is with the beta HST iTunes plug in & BLiTunes.

                      yes I will continue to support and develop this plugin, and the HSTouch integration as well

                          Hi Spud,

                          I've downloaded your iTunes plugin yesterday and I really like the possibilities as 'multi-zone airplay'.... great!
                          But when integrating the plugin into HSTouch I discovered some problems using the 'music selector'.
                          After searching the forum I'd discover this thread....

                          Do you have any idea when the iTunes functionality, including the 'music selector' will be available into HSTouch?

                          Thanx...

                          Jaco

                              The problem with the HSTouch integration is that it doesn't depend on me. The media API for HSTouch is not complete and buggy, so we need HST to work on it. I have sent them countless emails about it but most of the time I don't get any answers. I even offered to debug it myself for free if they could share this part of the code. So I'm not sure what more I can do

                                Got it. Gonna create a new thread to bug them and reply EVERY WEEK till we get some movement. My customer is asking me time and time again when he'll be able to utilize his Russound & his 200GB music library. It's kinda embarrassing to keep saying 'its not up to me, it's up to the developer'. He's almost to the point of scrapping his HS3 setup for RTI or Control4.
