It would be awesome to get itunes support on the 770. Something like the Sonos controller.

If you are using a Mac, then I can highly recommend Coverbuddy

http://www.coverbuddy.com/

It allows you to control itunes (like a sonos) over any web browser, so perfect for the 770 when it finally comes out.

From the website:


How does it work? CoverBuddy has an all new Web Interface Server that lets you access and control your entire music collection over the internet. Just select "Server Settings" from the menu, check "Activate Web Interface" and click "Launch in Browser". Invite your friends over, and feel free to socialize. Armed with your trusty PSP, you now have an interactive remote controller that lets you change the music playing on your computer, from any room in the house!

If your'on a Mac get :
http://homepage.mac.com/markburgess3...unes/index.htm

It's free, it works great with my Pb downstairs and an airport express connected to my stereo in the living room.

You're even able to control the volume via the N770 browser window.

How about installing Slim Server which integrates with iTunes? You should then be able to stream your music library wirelessly (haven't tested this yet - will do tonight).

You don't need a Squeezebox to use the Slim Server software - it's a free download from Slim Devices.

I intend to use the 770 as a (wi-fi) remote control for my Squeezebox by using the "Handheld" skin, although I suspect better skins may be developed as the popularity of the 770 increases.

That Slim Server works like a treat...
Just follow the instructions and bingo (make sure you have Lame MP3 encoder on the server or it wont work)

The interface fits into 800 wide as well.

Edit... when you change track it plays the current track for maybe twenty seconds before changing. Must be the buffer? Still, listening to music via slim while i type this . Way better quality than my lifedrive had.
