Hi guys,

Just wondering if someone can provide an update on the TCP listener functionality? For all of us Squeezebox users, the ability to only update a sensor when a new track starts playing (using the subscribe function) would be a welcome function. I'm afraid that Squeezebox community is not interested in implementing a UDP subscribe function otherwise I would use that function with OpenRemote UDP listener.

I'm wanting to implement a set of sensors that return the current and next 5-10 tracks in a playlist but polling for updates at a short enough time period to update the track list (1 second) really bogs down the entire system. However, using the Squeezebox command line interface subscribe function and a TCP listener on the other end, I would only get data when a subscribed event occurs.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.


Do you have a link to the API which Suqueezebox is using?

I have a link to the command line interface (CLI). This is what I use for sending commands and polling for data; I would like to use the subscribe command to reduce the amount of polling occurring. (I know, it's a strange link; it will ask to download a htm file which has the CLI implementation data).

Link to the CLI:,d.cGU

Here is what I found for an API. I haven't investigated further, however. Seems more like another interface for the CLI.

Python API

Java API

Let me know if you need or were looking for something different.
