Recommend not using this. Use regular NetLinx module instead. I think Jon Parker has a copy.
Slow, outdated, web still shows Duet version as recommended, did not work well for me.
The only problem with the iPort is that it doesn't recover gracefully if the client has an iPod in there and the iPod "goes to sleep."
Hmm, we've never heard about this problem. I wonder if all of our clients have theirs set to not to go to sleep. Which module is this a problem with? Or is more of a hardware issue?

Only way to get the iPort working in that case is to pull the iPod out and then put it back in. The client needs to be instructed to set their iPod to never go to sleep.

Doesn't polling the iPod with some frequency prevent it from going to sleep, or do the modules not do that?
It's been a while since I played with iPod control - never (and won't) use AMX's module or iPort's module, but never had a problem with the iPod going to sleep and ceasing to respond.
Or is this something particular with say the nano?
I've used the standard netlinx module from Sonance with good results. If you're a "dealer" you can access the site! It is however an iPod so you can't expect K-Scape or ARQ like like results.http://www.iportmusic.com/moduleaccess.html
