Yes, was playing with it last year for quite some time, but it didn't fullfil my 'needs'.

But now: there is a new version around: 2.0 beta! And this one absolutely rocks :cool:
- It is able to stream data (*) to your mobile device.
- It is providing a skin engine which lets you create skins for your mobile - one for each application :eek:


(*) Like: artist name, song title, playlists, progressbar (playback / volume), track time

I was playing around with winamp's profile so far only. :sorry:

But the new version is even providing the possibility to remotly control your (HT)PC - by streaming the desktop to the mobile client.

Despite of its beta status it is already working very well and reliable :)

Basically every application is conrollable by Vectir.

But to use the features of streaming data the application has to provide data sinks and data sources. Have a look at these screen shots: Vectir 2.0 Screenshots

I don't know if the MePo API is providing such data. Maybe an additional plugin could solve this :confused:

I'm currently in contact with the dev team of vectir. They are going to release a SDK after the first release of 2.0 is made. With this SDK it will be possible to add application specific support to vectir.

If an application provides a public API (MePo?) which vectir could use - it should be quite simple to write a plugin/extension for vectir to use all features provided by the public API. Means this would make e.g. a Logi Harmony needless.

Sounds really promising to me.

Many thanks for the answer. So far I've used Logitech's Harmony hub. This allows you to control all components (including the media portal). I have now contacted the Sofabaton hotline. It should also work here like with the Harmony. Unfortunately, not all of the IR codes are correct. You can also learn commands here. But that doesn't...

The layout of remotes does vary from one model/brand to another. I too find that some layouts are better than others. Generally, I prefer the buttons that I use most-frequently to be positioned near the center of the remote, which is not the case with that particular Dell remote. :( Battery life is often a problem. A remote that I...
