API assistance?

API! Yay!

Time to dust off my coding abilities, if I can… Or I’ll get help.

Here what I’d like to achieve:

  1. Get info from the core on what’s playing in a specific zone (artist, album, track number, track title, time, total time, format, bit depth, sampling freq, eventual DSP improvements info

  2. Send that info to an LCDproc server on my network, which will display all that on a 24x2 VFD installed under the TV, above the amps

If there is anyone reading this with a similar need of better coding capabilities than mine (dead is easy, I’m more than rusty) and wants to give a hand…
