    I have a PowerBook G4, running version 10.4.10. I am trying to find a way to wirelessly control my iTunes. I have the apple remote app, but it wont let me controll any shared music, just whats on my laptop. Most of my music is on my G5 tower in another room. I would like to be able to change songs in this shared playlist via a remote of somesort on my iphone. Ive tried apps such as jcControl and Snatch Test. My iphone connects to my computer, but the apps simply dont work... Any ideas would be great!

    You would have to connect to the computer that has the music you want on it. Or what you can do is play a song from the shared library but you can only go forward or backward in that shared library on the iPhone.

    G5 Tower

    PowerBook G4 → iPhone

    (only can control "next" and "previous" commands)
