hopefully right forum: Apple remote app

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Trying to get my media server in place I have a few questions. I am going to be wirelessly streaming my music and out of the remotes I have tried for my iphone apple remote seems to be the best. It works with Itunes but itunes on the PC is not bitperfect. It actually can work with mediamonkey as well.
One question I have is media monkey can stream to airport express right?
Also airport express can do bitperfect but is it bitperfect if streaming from itunes on a PC?

My biggest problem though and the reason for this thread is that I have gotten the remote app to work before. Ever since updating it to the newest version it will find my library on both itunes and media monkey, but it will not connect! It just sits there and loads and then eventually fails to connect?

Can't help with mediamonkey but I can tell you that there is a Foobar2000 plugin that allows it to be controlled by the Remote app.

Also what OS will your media server be running? If you end up going with XBMC there is a fantastic XMBC remote app for the iPhone.
At long last...

Is xbmc good for music? Can it do bitperfect?
Also I am just using my main PC for now and it has windows 7
And I can get the remote for media monkey and itunes to find the library but it won't connect so I am assuming I will have the same problem with foobar.

You would get some better answers if you posted this in the HTPC or sound cards and audio section.
