MonkeyTunes and Itunes together

Postby drossi » Sun Aug 10, 2014 11:02 am

Hi all, I'm new of this forum so apologize if I do any error.

A little bit of my hw/Sw setup:
- Windows PC with MediaMonkey and MonkeyTunes
- HiFace M2Tech USB key
- External DAC +.... (for high quality listening...)
- NAS with Flac HD Music
- Iphone with Remote App
With my setup I'm ready to use Iphone Remote app to control my library to play on my HiFi system.

New add on:
- B&W Zeppelin (for ambient...)
- Itunes installed on same Windows PC
- Same NAS with ALAC library (converted from FLAC ...)
With this setup I can Use Iphone Remote app to control my (ALAC) library to play on Zeppelin (air Play)

Question:
-As you probably know I CANNOT use Remote apple to control both Itunes and MediaMonkey :cry: , do you have any suggestion that can help me to use 1 or 2 apps on my iPhone to control both MediaMonkey and Itunes simultaneously?

Thanks
Domenico
----
for who is intersted I can share my full setup that can give you this set of features:
- Play HighRes (up to 24bit/192Khz) audio from NAS through DAC (with Iphone Remote control)
- See Film (avi, mkv,mp4, ...) on Ipad/Iphone/Android... from NAS
- See Film (avi, mkv,mp4, ...) on Sony TV up to 1080p from NAS
- See picture on Ipad/Iphone from NAS
- See Picture on TV from NAS
- all simultaneously (depend on banwith of our LAN/WiFi)
- No Pc management, all through Iphone or remote control

Well if your goal is playing music to your AirPlayu device then you could use the MM plugin RemoteSpeakers or the software called AirFoil by Rogue Amoeba.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion I will test it,

however my intention was to have 2 differents app on my Iphone: 1st to control Itunes (should be remote app) to play through AirPlay and/or PC; 2nd to control MM (and cannot be remote app) to play HD music (Itunes cannot do that) through PC.
The two apps should work simultaneously. Any suggestion is appreciated.
I will try airfoil in the meantime and post my comments

Thanks

A lot of people like the app MonkeyMote for the iPhone to control MM. That would leave you will Apple Remote for iTunes.
