It took far longer than I expected to take the random C with classes code I found on the internet and to turn it into more modern C++ code with a python interface. Admittedly the code I have can really only reliably turn it on, off, mute, and change the channel. But that is enough to go work on some of the other parts of this XM project.
I need to either figure out how to stream using raop_play to the airport express, or figure out how to get darkice to stream the wave file. (As I don't have enough CPU cycles to actually compress the stream into the mp3 that its currently creating.)
Not to mention I also need to write some web interface to control the little widget.
