I have installed MPD. I want to use my iPhone with MPoD to use as a "remote control" for the MPD server. I don't want the sound to come from the iPhone but I do want it to come from the PC with the MPD server. Basically just a remote control. The real reason I ask is I've got a Buffalo NAS server which I want to run MPD on and use a USB DAC to have audio into my amplifier and just use the iPhone as a remote to tell the server to play, etc.

Is that possible? or is MPoD just for playing music on the iPhone from the server? Or am I looknig for something like MPC for the iPhone?. Or should I be looking at other software?

(Plus I can't seem to connect vie MPoD. I've tried the eth0 address, the actual Internet address and even the username.)

Got it all working as intended. Now just to get it working with the NAS drive when it comes.

Good to hear you got it working. MPoD is my favorite iPhone app.

Thestreaming mode is the coolest. I can stream my entire music library to my iPhone. All my music wherever I go. Only catch is you have to compile MPD with LAME support and the Ubuntu repository package doesn't have that enabled.
