Songcast active sender - PeteManchester - 04-03-2014 03:09 PM


Sorry another question, in the case where I have multiple Songcast senders, is it possible to indicate which one is playing in the control point.

I cannot seem to find a method to set which sender is active, I set the Info service and so the name of the sender is displayed (top left in Kinsky) but there is no indication in the list of senders (right hand side in Kinsky).

Or is it not recommended to have multiple senders active..

The equivalent in the PlayList to indicate which track is playing is


Thanks again,

I think you're wondering how to get Kinsky to indicate which Sender a given Receiver is listening to? Enabling this isn't entirely straightforward and isn't exactly obvious...

Kinsky takes the Uri state variable from the Receiver service and compares it to the url inside the res element in the Metadata reported by each Sender service. If this isn't giving the desired results for you, I'd start by looking at the Metadata your sender reports.

Thanks, my question wasn't very clear, but you answered it.

I had an issue with the metatext, it's working now I've fixed that..

Thanks again,
