So at one point I got my iPod Touch running the iPhone 3 software and the Remote app to work with my library. That was until I saw an iTunes update that included Bonjour. I saw the description included an indexing service and I know indexing services hammer the crap out of WinXP so I shut the service off.
Turns out that’s what iTunes uses for things like the Remote app on the Touch. Doh!
Switch the service back on and all works well now.
Regarding the Motorola S9 earphones. I note it’s very sensitive to interference or drop outs when conditions aren’t pristine. And I cannot get the phone segment to work with Fring. It expects a specific phone only bluetooth signal. Has to be a way to spoof it though so I’ll be looking for that.
