Hi,

We have a separate tv monitor that runs at a lower resolution than the projector for the stage, is there an XML output or some kind of client server mode that can send data to another computer. I already have an Xml viewer program from an older project, so an Xml feed would be perfect. a mirror of the display with VNC is not good because of the resolution difference and background image.

thanks

Jon

We have a little tool that will sync two copies of SongBeamer. We could make it available in a couple of days if you're interested.

i'd be interested if i can just display the words from another machine at a different resolution and no background. How do they sync?

thanks
Jon

Yes, that is possible. You need to have the same set of songs on both PCs (it could also be a network drive). I'll post more detailed instructions soon.

will the other program run on linux - with wine, or java? otherwise maybe you can make the API open for a 3rd party client ?

Please download the following document for the instructions:
http://www.songbeamer.com/bin/tools/SongBeamer_Remote_EN.pdf

Boths programs need Windows because SongBeamer currently needs Windows. We send XML packets over a network connection. You could write a tool that listens on the network port for SBRemote and see what commands we send. Each packet is terminated using the 0xC character.

thanks Sebastian, I will probably write an Xml/Xslt displayer since we have a linux box next to the projector. Is the Xml format self-explanatory, and do I need to connect to a Url on port 19150 ?

Maybe i could get the source code or API for SBRemoteReceiver?

thanks

I will send you a part of the source code, but I can't send everything. You need to listen on port 19150 and see what you receive. It should be self explanatory.
