Rowmote

I'm currently using Rowmote (standard) to control Amarra. It works very well but keep wondering about Romote Pro. Will pro enable me to be able to see my desktop so I can leave my monitor off?

 

As always, thanks for the help.

It is amazing how much work the developer probably put into the app, yet there is not a thing on their website in terms of a function list for Rowmote Pro. I think you might have to bight the bullet and spend the $4.99 to find out. The video seems to indicate that it remote controls a monitor or TV connected to a MAC either by duplicating the mouse or the Apple physical remote. In other words you'll need your monitor on to see what the remote is doing.

DJ_AmTrax ... can you explain why we might want to use LogMeIn on a local network when you can use Apple ScreenSharing / VNC or Microsoft Remote Desktop?

 

LogMeIn is a service designed to enable you to access a computer via the internet - it works well for this but within a local network the alternatives work better.

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

Can you recommend an app for me to use then? Chicken of the VNC? What else would be best from my itouch to Mini (Leopard)

Evan from Rowmote said that he has heard good things about JaaduVNC. Maybe I'll try that tonight.

 

response from JaaduVNC:

Jaadu VNC will display the desktop of your Mac Mini - regardless of whether the MAC itself is connect to the monitor or not. After that, you can open any program and control it.

Please note - there is no audio streaming so the sound will not come from iPhone. I am assuming Mac Mini is connected to your home theater system?

It uses built-in screen sharing option of OS 10x and does not consume any additional memory

I used it for a while looking for a way to shut down my Windows 7 unit, but after seeing the cpu usage spike after enabling/running it I desided it was not for me. I run a single core for my music machine, but I don't like the idea of it distracting playback at any level.

Have you ever compared the sound of a Mac running Amarra when you do control the software with different types of interfaces?

 

I have 3 different Mac Systems here, and on my Macs I am using Amarra for Playback and I am only happy with the sound when using the small IR Mac control.

 

Using RowMote or RowMote Pro (which is really better), because basically RowMote is nothing more than the IR control, but with WLAN instead of IR.

 

So when using Rowmote via AdHoc WLAN, the sound was still good, but slightly more diffuse. Still acceptable but the sound influence clearly notable.

 

When using the “nicer” iRemote App (with my iPhone, same as with RowmotePro), the sound “collapse”. The soundstage is smaller, the bass has no strength, the treble is nervous. Its sounds more like MP3 kind, than AIFF.

 

I have also tried for example Mocha VNC, but besides the higher CPU load for the MacBook, the sound was absolutely not acceptable.

 

For realtime Linux this is something different, but for Mac, please try yourself theses comparisons with different interfaces and listen to it seriously if you can live with the sound degradation or not.
