    Any ideas please, Im running a laptop carpc and have all my music on the harddrive. I would like to keep it a headless unit while i drive, but want to control the music from my droid. Id love to just use itunes, and use tuneRemote[]iTunes Remote App for Android Looks Fantastic - Android - Gizmodo and call it a day, but it runs over wifi.

    Ive spent days searching how to solve this in a car situation, either adhoc the wifi, but the droid wont detect the network, or a bluetooth alternative. I dont want to root my phone, I dont want to give the pc internet access, but i need to be able to see the songs/artists, play/pause, skip... album artwork would be a bonus. Thanks for your input

    how do you have a carpc and not have a wifi controller installed? how do you get music to the HD? get a USB wifi device or something similar?

    the carpc has wifi, the droid will not connect to adhoc of the carpc, unless you root your droid... I just dont want to root my droid.

    the demo showed the app connecting directly to an IP. can't you designate your wifi as a static IP?

    ...well i know you can wifi mount your SD card and browse your local network on your wifi connection without rooting your DROID. that's why I'm surprised that this doesn't work. it's no different than using a crossover cable.
