Any support for the Palm Pre? I imagine I'm not the only user looking for it...

Thanks.

I just got a pre yesterday and also thought of this. While I haven't really looked into the Mojo SDK yet, this definitely seems possible. I'm going to look into it and see what I can figure out.

Quick Update:

I spent some time learning the mojo SDK, it is actually pretty easy. Anyways, I have successfully play/paused pandora from a custom app in the emulator on my computer. I haven't actually run it on my pre but I'm sure it will work. I'm not really doing anything fancy.

Not sure how long it'll take me to make a releasable app, but it shouldn't be months.

This is the #1 app I am waiting for on my palm pre. Please someone figure out how to do this :D

EDIT:
When/if this is made, don't forget to add it to the precentral homebrew app gallery. That way we can start using it before Palm decides its ready to actually release apps.

I would also love to help test this app out when you get it ready.

+1 for Boxee Pre Remote. This would be my #1 app as well, and I'm willing to help test it out. Would this work for both Mac and Windows versions?

I am the developer behind the Media Remote and have not had the opportunity to test it with boxee. If someone would like to test it let me know and I will give them a free copy (4.99) of the server. currently it works with XBMC so I believe it will work with boxee but I need a tester. Email us at contactus@engineequalscar.com. You can see our site on the media remote at http://www.engineequalcar.com/mediaremote

I put together something quickly. Make sure your boxee box is at 192.168.1.100 (for now, until I put preferences in), connect to the wifi network that you boxee is on, then just run the app.

This might be a dumb question but how can you change the IP address in Boxee to make it 192.168.1.100? thanks in Advance

You change the ip address of the computer that boxee is on to 192.168.1.100. I promise I am working on preferences. This is my first developement attempt, and I have a full time job (teaching math), so please forgive the slow developement cycle.

Instructions to change IP:
For Windows XP (http://www.hotcomm.com/faq/FAQ_staticIPXP.asp)

For Mac (http://portforward.com/networking/static-Mac10.4.htm)

email me at richaoj{at}gmail.com for more help.

we're having this conversation on two seperate forums . . . haha. Let's just stick to precentral for the sake of simplicity for now.

sure

PS, for those reading this app available via homebrew:

A Boxee Remote is also in the works by Alexander Slansky. PreCentral recently did a write-up on it. In addition to the basic remote features, it displays what is currently playing and allows you to browse your library.

It's a Beta app, so it's hard to find in the app library, that being said, you can download it from your phone directly with this link: http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=com.aslansky.boxee

Here is the article: http://admin.precentral.net/quick-app-boxee-remote

Here is the app profile: http://admin.precentral.net/app-gallery/beta/boxee-remote

Enjoy!

I've been trying his app out and it works extremely well. And it makes browsing so much better than with a regular remote.
