    Since apple tv can now work as an airtunes source, can the remote app control this.

    i.e if I had an airport express could i use the remote app to control it through the apple tv's airtunes .

    I'm going to piggyback on this thread to ask if anyone knows the reason that I can't RATE songs when I'm using remote.app to control either my iTunes library or my Apple TV.

    If I double-click on the song that's playing in remote.app I can see the playlist and I can see the rating (if the song has one) but it won't let me change them! :confused:

    Yes, you can use the Remote App to control any available library on your network that is configured to allow remote control (e.g. :apple:TV, any computer's iTunes), and you can direct the output to any device available to that library (e.g. :apple:TV, Airport Express, the computer's own speakers). If you have multiple speakers selected they all play in unison. It is a really impressive software/hardware combination.
