I have no issues with Roomie other than the technical ones I have posted. I asked for clarification on something you said because I am quite curious about it. From what I can see, the biggest disadvantage of Thinkflood's Redeye Pro is its price. If one has a single iOS device, controlling exclusively IP-based devices, Roomie is by far the best choice from what I have seen. The further one gets from that situation the less clear the choice becomes.
You first stated that you had 7 devices using a single paid copy of the app, and then stated that your devices were spread over 4 iTunes accounts. One thing that raises the price for Roomie users is the requirement to purchase copies of the application for every iTunes account. Your posts, taken together, indicate that you did not need to do that (one paid copy, four accounts), which leaves me curious how you do that. If there is some mechanism that allows this, it greatly reduces the cost of Roomie for situations like mine - something that would make it much more appealing.
If you don't like it, thats cool, but you don't have to post rebuttles on every bit of info I supply.
I post responses to clarify technical issues to make sure that people reading these posts can decide with complete information. Again, if one has a single iOS device acting as a remote, the Global Cache GC-100 is a great, inexpensive option (I currently own 4 of them). The single connection is, however, a serious limitation and one about which readers here should know.
I have both Irule and Roomie. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Just choose the program thats right for you and be happy.
Actually, since none of these systems currently meet my needs well, my goal is to provide as much feedback to their creators as I can, in the hopes that one will solve the remainder of my concerns and make my choice easy.
Roomie is quite close to what I want, as is Redeye Pro, but neither has solved all the issues that are critical to me.
I first posted on this issue in May (See Stateful iOS remote - Harmony 890 Pro Replacement
), and while we are getting closer, we are not there yet.
