    Default [Req] AirTunes Remote Functionality?

    So iTunes has hooks built into it to respond to signals sent over Bonjour from remote controls plugged into the USB port on an AirPort Express. Does anyone know if it would be possible to have the iPhone emulate this functionality acting as a wifi remote for iTunes?

    You can use TouchPad Pro, it has an "Apple Remote" mode that works amazing, I use it every day. Just need to enable vnc on the Mac, and use your router to set a specific IP to your Mac every time. Took me about 5 minutes of configuration, and now I use TouchPad to control the Mac from across the room, whether I'm controlling the mouse or just using it as an iTunes/Front Row remote.

    And both of these solutions are great, but in terms of ease of use, utilizing the protocols already built into iTunes for remote control over WiFi makes much more sense.

    This would make the iphone + airtunes similar to the sonos digital music player.

    This would be a great app!

    I've been looking at Airfoil which has applescript hooks for controlling airtunes speakers. Might be able to integrate this with the iphone somehow...

    I had emailed the Rogue Amoeba developers a while back and they said they would wait for the Apple SDK before they developed anything. Maybe they will try to get this working on the iPhone. I'll email them and see.

    Looks like we're getting this soon.
