Else try another port, maybe your router can't handle another port 80 device, since he uses it for the admin interface.
You have to adjust your apache configuration for that (xampp/apache/config/httpd.conf)
port 80, change it to port 81.
And nat port 81 to your computer. If that isn't working, I see no other possibility to get this fixed...

Now I really do feel dumb. That works great on port 81. I dont know why I didnt think of doing that before...
Thank you so much! Great time saver!

Hmmm need a some help.
Installed xampplite, made a folder interface put HTTP-R 0.3.1 in there and signt ip adress in config.php.
With these adresses I'll get the screen : Select Mediacenter / Zolderlocation.
If I select the location, it try's to open http://%3c/?__id=2 and get the message could not open page.
I'll get an indexing movie / music /etc.
Edit: Works fine!
xbmc control panel will show.
What I'm doing wrong
Did try IE and Opera 9.63
Thanx in advance Waffa / Poeier
Got it working.

It still don't work for me and I did the following things:
I'm using Opera 9.6 and typing http://localhost/interface I've got a screen with 2 options xbox and location. I click the xbox-option and whatever I've tried it only shows an empty screen. What's the problem?

Allright. This looks promising. I've got it working.
I would like to use this software as a "remote" on a built in laptop on the first floor of my house. My mediacenter is downstairs in the living room, and is hooked up to a multi-zone receiver.
Ideally, I want to use my XBMC-HTPC as the primary source for my content, and let the receiver distribute this trough my house. But I do want to control the Mediacenter. So I've got the XBMC-Iphone software, but I think It would be really cool if I have a 17" remote built in in the wall of the second floor of my house.
So my question to you is: will this promising-looking HTTP-remote be able to have a display resolution that can be used on a normal desktop?

Just tried this app and it looks very promising!
I installed it without problems and it's working fine. My only two remaining questions are:
1. Can I schedule the indexing.php to run every time I start windows or xbmc (or every 24h). Preferably on the background
2. How do I get this fancy look for tv shows like on http://derek.denhaas.info/xbmc/Knipsel3.PNG? I get the upper part of the normal art I have in xbmc ( I use the info list view from MediaStream which shows large pictures for each TV show). Should I change my default view in xbmc so that HTTP-R fetches the right pictures to \images\tvshow\ ?
Keep up the good work!

PMIII uses bannerart by default, whereas Mediastream uses poster format for displaying TV-Shows. That's probably your issue

Great! have fun using it
Qwyrp Wrote:It still don't work for me and I did the following things:
1. Check if the XBOX http is really working (go to http://<ip xbox>:8080).
2. Go to indexing.php, give me the error displayed over there.

I'm having great news for you! http://derek.denhaas.info/xbmc/0.4/pc_interface.jpg (preview of "touch" on PC - kinda remote control -), the new pc-interface for the upcomming release!
0.5 will have even more feautures (I'll give it large buttons, so it's great for what you want (would be even nicer if you have a 17' touchscreen))
BadMuts Wrote:Just tried this app and it looks very promising!
1. Working on that
2. It can also be your XBMC build, if you are using SVN, you can sometimes have a problem... my code SHOULD always get the tv-show banner (wide)
Btw sorry for my late reply, I only check this thread 3 times a week (haven't got more time ), also check some new screenies, cleaner, but same functionality.

Great reply man! I know, a Touchscreen would even be better, but those things are still quite expensive, so that's on the roll for later. ;-) First a want to have everything functioning, To haul the wife over, then we're gonna invest. ;-)

An affordable version is available soon! http://www.thegadgeteers.com/product_mimo.html. The first touchscreen which also looks good and perfect as a secondary monitor (besides your large LCD/Plasma) to control XBMC.
The touchscreen version is about 135 euro's.
