One thing I have been looking all over the place for though is information about a remote that has a lcd display.
So far that i can tell, no one has a lcd display even avalible for the ipod. I have searched through the forums and found a guy had reverse-engineered a ipod or something and found a way to possibly send the information.
Basically what i would like to know is...
1. Is there any Ipod lcd remotes out there that i just cant find?
2. If not, does anyone know if is or will be possible for a lcd remote to work with the Ipod?
3. Has anyone tried using a lcd remote from an Iriver or something? or are they totally incompatable?
Any info or talk about a remote would be greatly helpful.
I've been looking for the same thing. And I don't see anything out their to satisfy our desire. It would be great if we could get an LCD remote similar to the one that comes bundled with the Sony Network Walkman (NW-HD1). I wonder if the ipod remote port has enough functionality in it to support an LCD remote. Probably not, otherwise some manufacturer would have already pumped one out.
As for question number 3, I REALLY doubt the remote from a different device would work on the ipod. Actually, I'd bet big money against it working.
